Issue du Jour: Acne!
Acne is a common skin condition which consists of blackheads, whiteheads, red spots, and sometimes deeper boil-like lesions called nodules or cysts. The problem sometimes continues into adulthood. It develops in the oil-producing structures of the skin called pilosebaceous follicles, which are present in large quantities on the face, chest, upper back and shoulders.
The exact cause is unknown. One theory is that when hormone levels increase, the skin of the acne prone person reacts by producing excess sebum (oils). Bacteria on the skin alter these oils to produce substances that cause acne. Hair follicles get plugged by dead skin cells, bacteria, hormones and sebum. Emotional stress, fatigue and cosmetics can aggravate acne.
There's no concrete evidence that food causes acne. Following the strictest diet will not by itself clear your acne. But some people find that their acne seem to worsen when they eat certain foods, particularly chocolates, fried food and chilies.
In terms of make-up: Avoid oily and greasy cosmetics. Use water-based, oil-free cosmetics sparingly. You can use eyeliners, eyeshadows and lipsticks. Ensure that cosmetics are washed off thoroughly with Zeta before going to bed.
If you have acne, treat it early. Waiting can be a serious mistake, since treatment can improve your appearance and prevent the development of scars. Never squeeze or scratch lesions, keep hands off the face as this can spread infection.
To clean your face, remove excess oil from the face by washing with a bactericidal skin soap. Wash frequently to remove excess oil and bacteria. Do not wash with harsh or high pH soaps.
