Acne vulgaris ( or simply acne)

Acne, the most common skin disorder in the U.S, has an impact that goes more than skin deep. It affects 40 to 50 million Americans and is associated with hormonal changes, pregnancy, menopause, some medications, and even stress, and anxiety . However, moderate acne can be controlled and managed with the proper treatment.

What is Acne?

Acne is a disorder of the pilosebaceous unit, or what is commonly called the hair follicle or pore.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it is the most common skin disorder in the United States. Acne vulgaris, as common acne is known, is classified as a chronic inflammatory disease of the skin. Acne occurs when oil and dead skin cells become trapped within the hair follicle, creating a plug within the pore. Acne is characterized by the presence of pimples or "zits", blackheads and whiteheads. It chiefly affects the face, neck, chest, back, and/or upper arms of sufferers. Rarely you will find acne in other areas of the body. Acne varies in development from very mild to extremely severe. Acne isn’t just for teenagers, many people have it as adults.

What causes Acne?

Adult acne: There are many reasons you can break out as an adult. Some medications, pregnancy, stress changes in your hormone levels, like menopause or switching or stopping birth control pills are many possibilities.

Skin care regimen

It is important to keep a regular skin care regimen to help control your acne. Follow these simple steps:
Skin care regimen:
It's very important to cleanse your skin every day.

  1. Wash your face no more than twice a day.
  2. Use cool or warm water and a gentle cleanser.
  3. Use your hands, a baby washcloth; it's gentler than a regular one (avoid cleansing brush as they may cause more irritation to your skin).
  4. Pat (don't rub) your skin dry.

The types of natural products you can use to curb your moderate acne include:

Cleansers. Cleansers wash away dirt, grime, makeup, and pollution. A good cleanser will also let other skin products reach your skin and work better. Choose gentle cleaners that won’t strip your skin. Look for ingredients which have antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties such Zinc oxide, salicylic acid, neem and melaleuca ( tea tree). A non drying antiseptic toner can be applied after the cleanser ( make sure your skin is dry before applying the toner). Products made with tea tree oil and Zinc Oxide can be good for the occasional spot treatment ( safe to leave on overnight)

Facial moisturizer. Use oil-controlling moisturizers with ingredients as calendula, Tamanu oil, lavender to help reduce the appearance of acne scars and sooth inflammation.

Cosmetics: Some cosmetics include salicylic acid, which fights acne. In general, look for skin care products that say on the label that they are noncomedogenic (which means they don't clog pores) or non-acnegenic (they don’t cause breakouts).

Note: People who suffer from severe acne should consult with a dermatologist.
