Acne Again. What Causes It?
- Posted on: Oct 30 2016
There it is. No matter how often you wash your face, how much water you drink or how healthy you eat, your skin still breaks-out, usually at the most inopportune times. Take heart, because you aren’t alone.
Many people – of all ages – are concerned about the appearance of their skin because of recurring acne flare-ups. Dr. Shel can help. But first, let’s learn about about three of the probable causes of acne:
- Bacterial Growth. Acne loves and feeds on germs and bacteria. So, don’t touch your face and don’t pick at your skin. Your daily face-touching rituals when relaxing at home, at work or when you sleep can add unwanted, unhealthy bacteria to your facial skin – making existing acne worse and resistant to treatment.
- Excessive Oil. Your skin needs oil to stay moist, bright and youthful. But when your skin produces too much oil, your risk of acne is increased. With hormonal changes comes excessive oil production. That’s why so many teens going through puberty suffer from acne. Many adults must also deal with hormonal imbalances and may find they need treatment for adult acne as they age.
- Blocked Pores. Your body is full of pores, and they play an integral part in your body’s overall health. Their purpose is to move waste products such as sweat from your body to help it maintain a healthy equilibrium. But your pores can easily become obstructed, and when that happens, acne can be a result. One of the surest ways to combat this acne trigger is to keep your face clean with a morning and night skin care routine – wash your face and never, ever go to bed with your make-up on!
What’s the take-away? Dr. Shel offers an acne treatment that combines the use of ALA, Amino-Levulinic Acid, and BLU-U light to shrink your oil producing glands. Don’t suffer with the embarrassment of acne any longer. Call to schedule a consultation appointment, today: 281-698-7435.
