Acne is the most common disease of the skin. Over 11% of Americans age 25 - 44 have acne. Over 84% Americans age 13 - 25 will get acne sometime in their life.
If you ignore, acne it can become infected, and cause scars and pockmarks that become permanent blemishes on your face. If you do not wish this to happen to you, then read on and try and clear up your stubborn acne.
Acne is a disease known as seborrhea or seborrheic dermatitis. It happens when the sebaceous follicle, beneath your skin, becomes contaminated with oily toxic substances, which carries dirt, dead skin excess sebum oil, acid waste, bacteria and toxic matter
Under normal circumstances the sebaceous glands release oil that comes through your pores onto the skins surface. This release keeps your skin moist and lubricated for protection from everyday life.
If the pores on your face are not clear or blocked, this produces toxic oil that can't come out onto your skin. This leads to a growth or pimple that begins to grow in size because more toxic oil attempts to get through to the surface of your skin.
If the pore walls burst out under the skin, white blood cells will go in and digest the collagen round the pores. Once this occurs, you will have scars on your face.
To stave off getting scars, you want to begin an acne-clearing program before you get acne or even as soon as you see acne coming so that your pimples and black heads do not get to the point where they get badly infected and erupt.
How To Cure Acne
Acne is a complex condition that involves a lot of parts of the body even though it shows up as eruptions on your face and elsewhere on your skin. It is a sign that you've got problems somewhere within your body. Acne may be caused by a toxic colon, poor digestion of food, weak liver and other conditions that make the blood hold too much toxicity.
To clear acne it is not always feasible to just act on one thing and expect acne to disappear. It may be possible to use a special cream and have your acne decrease or clear.
Acne might disappear by just doing one thing only, do not expect it too. A facial cream, diet, herbal treatment, and colon cleanse alone might not be capable of clearing acne. A combination might or might not work. A sensible diet with plenty of vitamin B will help and cut down on salt and dairy products.
