Now more than ever, people seem to be
looking for safe, natural and effective ways to treat anything that ails them,
from pain to digestive troubles to addressing their skincare needs, but how
does a natural acne solution really work?
In order to understand how acne can be
treated, it’s important to become familiar with how acne works in the first
place. Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, and affects
people of all ages. It is usually the result of a hormonal imbalance, which goes
on to affect the sebaceous glands. These glands produce sebum, or oil, which
travels along the hair follicle, or pore, to protect and nourish the skin. Some
imbalanced hormones can trigger the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum than
necessary, which become clogged within the pore on its way to the surface. When
combined with dead skin cells, bacteria forms, which sparks an inflammatory
reaction, resulting in symptoms called pimples.
Although acne is known to affect all
types of people regardless of age, sex or race, there are different types of
acne that affect certain people specifically, and can all be classified as
either inflammatory or anti-inflammatory. Certain acne types are generally
harder to treat than others, especially the adult and cystic varieties.
In order to begin an effective acne
solution for your skin, learn your acne type
now to take charge of your treatment. The most effective way to go about doing
this is by implementing a combination of approaches, targeting the problem from
within, and taking care to practice proper hygiene with topical treatments on
the surface. AcnEase works internally to treat the problem at its source, and
here are five reasons why it’s so effective!
