Causes Of Acne

What Really Haapens When You Get Acne:

The sebum, which is produced in the follicle normally, flows to the skin surface via a canal. The canal is also used to remove dead cells shed by the walls of the follicle.

In acne the canal becomes plugged with increased amounts of sebum and cellular debris.

Within the plugged area, high levels of bacteria, Proprionibacterium Acnes (P. acnes), are found. Enzymes from the bacteria split the sebum into free fatty acids that are highly irritating to the skin. When a break in the cell wall occurs, the free fatty acid and cellular debris cause inflammatory reactions of varying degrees.

As a result of this, you have one of the following types of acne:

• Mild (Grade I): Blackheads or whiteheads, either a few or many in number. No inflammation.

• Moderate (Grade II): Blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Slight
inflammation. Chest and shoulders may be involved.

• Severe (Grade III): Blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples with deeper
inflammation. Usually involves face, shoulders, and chest.

• Very Severe (Grade IV): Called cystic acne. Extensive eruptions. Highly
inflamed, pus-filled nodule. May include entire upper body.

Various Factors Affecting Acne:

Your Diet And Eating Habits

Although eating a balanced diet is conducive to good health and healthy skin, diet does not ordinarily cause acne. Chocolate, french fries, hamburgers, and other rich, greasy foods do not cause acne.

However, beer, wine, and liquor in large amounts can worsen acne. Iodized salt, shellfish, and iodine-containing vitamins can also occasionally aggravate acne. Rarely, a true reaction to a food may cause skin eruptions, a rash or blotchy hives.

Heat and moisture

Dry heat may improve the skin. Moist heat, friction, and sweating aggravate acne. Although acne may benefit from the dry heat of sunbathing, care should be taken to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun's cancer causing rays. A non-comedogenic sunscreen of SPF 15 or more should be applied whenever in the sun and especially between the hours of 10 am-3 pm.

How You Care For Your skin

Washing twice daily using lukewarm water and a mild, nonabrasive, antibacterial soap, such as Lever 2000, Dial or Phisoderm, cleans the skin adequately. Avoid using oily, heavy cosmetics, and creams.

Your Occupation

Acne may worsen in people who work in the kitchens of restaurants. The heat and moisture are probably causative and not the grease. Occupational exposure to tars and certain organic solvents may aggravate or initiate acne.
