Acne Treatments | Skin Care Treatments Utah
Acne is a skin condition that causes whiteheads, blackheads, and sometime cysts that many people suffer from. Your skin is covered in pores; these hold hair follicles and oil glands. Your pores produce oil in order to remove old skin, dirt, and to keep your skin feeling healthy and soft. While the oil is good for you, your glands can overproduce it. This causes the pores to become clogged, keeping in these old skin cells, dirt, and bacteria. These blockages are known as comedone.
Acne is most common in teenagers due to hormonal changes. In fact, acne affects about 75% high school aged people. Acne is not exclusive to teenagers though, anyone can get acne, even children.
Hormonal changes such as menstruation, pregnancy, birth control, and stress can also cause acne breakouts. Sometime cosmetics and hair products can also cause acne, as well as steroids, testosterone, and estrogen.
Weather can also be a big factor in causing acne breakouts, especially places with high humidity. It is a myth that greasy food, nuts, and chocolate cause acne, but it is proven that people who eat food high in refined sugars are more likely to have acne.
