This article will discuss acne, its causes, symptoms, its effects on adolescents’ self-esteem and remedies.
There are various remedies for this skin problem, but it all depends on the nature of the condition and the severity of what to look for, to a beautician, GP or dermatologist as well as home treatment which is usually the basis for good results.
Acne Vulgaris is a common and serious skin problem. This skin problem usually starts at the age of twelve to fourteen, but much younger children can also get it and it can last until they are over twenty. It is also not uncommon for adults to experience this, and then women rather than men.
But what is the cause?
The main cause of this skin problem is that there is an increase in the production of the male horn androgen in both sexes. This increased production of hormones in the body leads to increased production of sebum in the sebaceous glands and the sebum flows to the surface of the skin.
Lipid-rich areas of the body are particularly prone to this skin problem but are the head, face, chest and upper back.
Acne can be found in oily skin with blackheads, small bumps and pimples. Another thing that also happens is that in the sebaceous glands, which can also be called pores, too many horn cells are formed, which narrows the opening of the sebaceous glands so that the sebum does not reach the surface easily. The ivory brush is formed which can be both open and closed, if closed the sebaceous glands become blocked. When the sebaceous glands become blocked, oily fat builds up in the gland, which fills up, until the walls of the gland rupture and the fat is released into the external skin tissue. When this condition is reached, pimples with redness and often swelling appear. This pimple could end up as a punch.
The skin bacterium Propioneba terium acne then thrives on the sebum and causes pimples.
Acne varies greatly from person to person. Some people only get an ivory brush, others just small pimples and still others only a punch, so you can get all versions of the skin disease.
More serious skin problems (Acne Conglobata) are also known and are most common in teenagers seventeen to twenty years old but can also last longer. The appearance of acne conglobata is similar to acne vulgaris but with pimples and deeper scars.
The effect of this on the adolescent.
As most of us know from our own experience, adolescence can be difficult. Acne can cause a great deal of mental distress. It can also create social problems and communication problems for the adolescent. Many large pimples can also leave scars that the teenager wears throughout his life, which can affect his self-esteem in adulthood.
The self-image that the adolescent is gaining during adolescence is very important and contributes to better well-being in the future.
A strong self-image is one of the best vegan things that teenagers can get into life as it increases the chances of success and well-being.
Skin problems can impair a teenager’s strong self-esteem and make adolescence more difficult.
What to do?
As mentioned before, there are various remedies available, but it all depends on the nature of the problem and the severity of what to look for.
Do not believe in quick fixes that tell you that a certain substance or method will solve your skin problem once and for all, this takes a long time and good practice if it is done right. Too many people spend a lot of money on cleansers and creams that are not suitable for their skin type and make the skin problem even worse.
A healthy and nutritious diet is important, along with a healthy lifestyle and exercise. Drink plenty of water to increase your body’s waste products. These things will never be overestimated. Too much stress also has a detrimental effect.
Acne skin should be treated as if it were sensitive skin. Do not rub the skin, do not scrub it with irritants, do not squeeze the pimples as it may leave scars. Beware of extreme cold, heat and sunlight. Sunlight can have a positive effect on the pimples temporarily but does not keep them down completely. In addition, excessive sunlight can cause skin damage and even cancer. Use cleansers and creams that do not contain grease and thus do not clog the pores of the skin.
Seek a beautician.
Beauticians have appropriate education regarding skin, skin diagnosis and treatment and skills in the various skin problems. Beauticians are professionals who can diagnose your skin type and then advise what skin treatment and skin care products your skin type needs.
The beautician advises to cleanse the skin in the evening and in the morning and to find a suitable cream and mask.
The goal of a beauty salon treatment is to cleanse and disinfect the skin without creating a lot of dryness. Cosmetics provide skin cleansing that soothes, soothes, reduces swelling and inflammation in the skin and aims to increase skin peeling to prevent further clogging. They do this with various methods such as squeezing ivory brushes, using high-tech technology or electronic deep cleaning, etc.
The beautician also provides training on the need to come several times in order to be successful. Targeted treatment in a beauty salon keeps the problem under control and is preventative but does not cure. Skin cleansing provided by beauticians in beauty salons can significantly improve the skin problem. Beauticians also have the knowledge and experience to assess whether the skin problem is within the field of cosmetology or whether the individual needs to be referred to a doctor.
Seek medical advice from a family doctor or dermatologist.
If the condition is severe, consult a doctor. Several types of antibiotics can be used for treatment. It is different whether the antibiotics are used with topical treatment or alone. It also varies how long they are used and how much of a side effect they have. All this is done in consultation with a doctor and with his instructions. Birth control pills have also been used, but then for women over twenty.
