Acne And Lifestyle

Jan 30, 2008
Everyone has gone through a phase where they suffered from acne and so they know how frustrating it can be to get rid of. Being prone to acne makes a person miserable and difficult to endure. It can be painful, both physically and emotionally and feel embarrassed while facing their peers. It can cause feelings of low-self esteem, humiliation and drive a person to depression.

Acne hits when one reaches puberty; ladies when they enter initial stages of pregnancy or if they are going through something else that could change the hormones in their body; and for some anytime during their life. It is not an incurable disease like many perceive it to be, there are many ways control acne, provided you take the preemptive approach. Going by the famous quote "prevention is better than cure", for acne too it holds true, as working on preventing acne is better than going in search of the perfect cure. The ideal way of counteracting the effects of this form of skin ailment is to adopt one of the popular proactive acne treatments, which will help take care of the affected person's body and their skin condition.

When we see a person with "common acne", we immediately make judgments about them and their lifestyle without bothering to find out the root cause of their problem. For all we know, it could be some skin product they used or hereditary, for which they are personally not responsible. Acne is caused when oils secreted block the skin pores and this leads to bacteria growing rapidly. The skin then becomes red, and there arises a boil. It could be tiny and almost invisible, or grow to become quite a big boil, making your face look like you have an extra part on it. This is what affects people most, and leads them to use any product that promises to cure acne.

The face, forearms, back, chest are the areas on our body that are highly susceptible to acne. If you run your hands across your back or arms, you are likely to come across little bumps, sometimes just one, and other times a cluster. These are a different form of acne caused due to excessive sweating or infection on the skin. Or if you have been using a particular brand of talcum powder, and suddenly switched brands, you might see an increase in these boils. This means your body is not agreeing with the contents of the new brand, so either stop using it or go back to earlier brand. Since our skin is very sensitive, it is important to monitor it and keep it healthy so it looks good even when we are old.

If you have decided to visit a dermatologist, make sure to brief them on your lifestyle patterns, if you have made any drastic changes in the recent past, your eating habits, other addictions and so on. This will help them make the right diagnosis and prescribe the suitable kind of treatment.
