Causes of Acne from Puberty and Beyond
On the most basic level, acne is caused by pores and hair follicles becoming clogged with oil and dead skin cells. However, what causes this excess of oil and dead skin, and why does it affect people in their pubescent years in particular?
The answer to both questions lies with hormones and hormonal glands, particularly the sebaceous gland. This gland produces an oil called sebum which is intended to keep the skin from drying and cracking. Sebum is also used for an energy source for P. acnes bacteria which is naturally present in pores. During pubescent years, hormonal imbalances often cause the sebaceous gland to work on overtime and produce more oil than is necessary, clogging pores and generating an overabundance of P. acnes bacteria. Excess levels of sebum oil, P. acnes bacteria, and dead skin cells are the most direct causes of the blackheads, the whiteheads, and the inflamed skin which characterize acne.
While these conditions are most commonly brought about by the hormonal activity which arises in the pubescent years, it is fairly common for people to have hormonal complications which last beyond puberty and cause acne in adults. Other factors which contribute to the development of acne include poor hygiene, poor dietary choices, and certain medications.
Proper Hygiene and Skincare
One of the most important factors in preventing acne is hygiene. Those who are suffering from outbreaks on any part of their body must first ensure that they clean themselves regularly and thoroughly to prevent excess accumulations of oils on the skin. Natural body washes which include tea tree oil are thought to be particularly effective at supporting a healthy balance of skin oils and preventing additional inflammation which can be caused by low quality, chemically-based soaps which excessively dry the skin.
It is also important to exfoliate the skin and keep it as clear as possible of dead skin cells – this step is too often forgotten by males with acne, as exfoliation is often less emphasized in male hygienic routines.
A Nutritional Approach to Acne Prevention
Those who are serious about cleansing their skin of acne and avoiding the potential of scarring often have to look deeper than just good hygiene. Two other factors which must be considered are nutrition and stress. Poor dietary choices, like excessive amounts of inflammation causing sugar, or greasy foods like french fries and pizza, are a massive contributor to acne at any age. Meanwhile, stress produces inflammatory activity throughout the body, skin included.
In an effort to provide an all-natural and highly effective nutritional support system for those who are serious about freeing their skin from blemishes, PatchMD has crafted these Keep Klear Acne Prevention Topical Patches. Contains 5000 IU of Vitamin A which is widely considered to be the most important nutrient for skin health. Not only does it help with anti-inflammatory activity, it is also involved in skin cell turnover. Your body needs an adequate supply of Vitamin A to help the skin recover faster from the vicious cycle of an acne breakout. Topical, transdermal delivery of Vitamin A, like these patches provide, is thought to greatly enhance the safety and efficacy of this crucial skin health vitamin.1
Each patch also features Zinc which has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial support properties, and a number of other vitamins and minerals which may help the body to resist stress and inflammation. All of these factors make these patches among the best all-in-one option for nutritional acne prevention.
