the clinical manifestation of acne is quite simple, pimples appear on ones
face, acne is actually a rather complex disease. What is causing the formation of pimples is
what is actually more complicated. If we
can understand what is causing acne in the first place we can develop a way toprevent acne pimples from forming and alleviate the need to treat existing acne.
look at what may be causing your acne. Some women may have an over secretion of
the adrenal glands that leads to elevated levels of testosterone (an androgen)
in their blood which is the cause of their acne. For some individuals during adolescents may be a large growth spurt with very high levels of fluctuating hormones, for
others it is linked to their menstrual cycle.
For men it may be a result of high testosterone levels but also increased
levels of estrogen and other hormones as well can be the culprit causing their
variation is also a large contributing factor, if one’s parents had acne it is
likely their children may also have acne. Finally even things such as
lifestyle, diet or skincare habits which may not be responsible for causing your
acne but may exacerbate existing acne.
good news is that for all of the above scenarios the common denominator is over
production of sebum (skin oil) by the sebaceous glands which can lead to
clogged pores. Once your pores are
clogged, dead skin cells accumulate and provide an ideal environment for the
growth of bacteria leading to red an inflamed pimples.
can be divided into several stages of development and the entire progression is
can be considered as the acne cascade:
you can see the very first step in the cascade is the over production of skin
oil by the sebaceous glands. If the goal
is prevent acne pimples from forming then any treatment option requires
intervention at this step. Accutane for
example works by reducing sebum production but is associated with many serious
side effects therefore it is often reserved for those with the most severe
forms of acne.
is an all natural herbal product that also targets the over production of
sebum in the skin. The ingredients in AcnEase work to reduce the
impact of fluctuating hormones and other drivers of acne formation from
stimulating the sebaceous glands. By
reducing sebum production AcnEase works to prevent new pimples from forming.
AcnEase also contain some mild anti-inflammatory herbals extracts and
antiseptic herbal extracts that help
with exiting pimples but the fight with
exiting acne can also be supported by use the over counter topical products.
These topical products can accelerate the disappearance of existing acne.
to make common sense, however, that instead of waiting for a pimple to form to
treat the problem it would be better to simply prevent the pimples from forming
in the first place. Hence it seems
abundantly clear that when it comes to acne treatment “An ounce of prevention
is clearly better than a pound of cure” So lets make a new proverb:
“AcnEase a Day keeps the Acne Away”
provides a simple, safe and proven way to prevent acne from forming and
attaining the goal of acne free skin.
