Acne is tough, and there are a lot of causes for it. Fighting is important to be able to keep your skin smooth and healthy. So we want to help you be able to both identify the cause of your acne and be able to prevent it! If your acne problems feel like they are hard to manage, the first recommendation is to see a dermatologist and create a plan to be able to clear your skin once and for all.
Different Types Of Acne
Acne can come from a variety of factors. For one there is fungal acne, which is a result of abnormal facial flora that feeds on sebum, and can cause infection. Because of this, fungal acne is most often going to occur in the parts of the skin that are flush with oil. There is also bacterial acne, which is caused by acne-causing bacteria getting stuck in clogged pores, feeding off sebum and promoting inflammation. There is also hormonal acne, caused by changes in hormones that create an influx of oil and sebum, thus causing acne.
Identifying the kind of acne you are experiencing can be determined by a dermatologist, or skin care specialist. Making sure you know what you are up against can be the key to ridding yourself of acne for good. There may be some cases where you need anti-fungal treatments to get your acne under control.
Combating Your Acne
When you go to fight your acne problems, you have to keep in mind that there are various ways to treat it based on the kind of acne it is. Formulating a plan with your esthetician can help keep acne away, and make sure your skin is healthy. There are a number of methods for combating acne that we are sure you will find helpful. One tip is to watch your food. Keep a food journal, record what you eat, and watch what happens to your skin after eating. While there is no link to say for certain that specific foods cause acne, a healthy diet leads to healthy skin - and everything else as well.
You should also not underestimate how much effect your hair can have on acne. If your hair is long and always in your face, it can actually cause more breakouts. This is through the hair oils making it on the face, promoting the growth of sebum-eating fungi or bacteria that cause acne in the first place. You also want to ensure that your face is being cleaned after any time you sweat because sweat can help make pores clog and result in that much more hassle. Something you may never have thought of prior to now as well is to routinely change your bedsheets and pillowcases. These catch dead skin cells, oil, as well as a variety of other microscopic organisms- and when you lay your head down at night if you do not wash them, it can be the cause of breakouts.
