Acne Is Caused By Clogging Of The Pores

Acne or zits as well as whiteheads as they are called form on the surface of the skin as a result of the clogging of the skins pores. Acne or spots are in fact treatable as well as curable. Seeing your dermatologist on a semi-regular basis is also important if you wish to efficiently manage your skin problem. The truth is that thousands if not millions of people have problems with acne  and thousands more will experience acne  to some degree in their lives.


Also, part of treating and preventing acne from forming on your skin is to stay stress free. Acne  is a very treatable condition, it just depends what kind of acne  you have as well as the type of skin you have too.


I call them the beginning zit years.  Teens have a habit of calling a whitehead pimple a zit for unknown reasons; I guess its always been the cool word.


If youre a teenager with a minor zit problem consider yourself lucky.  A minor acne  problem is defined as an occasional outbreak of no more than 5-10 acne  on your face, and no evidence of any serious condition such as cystic acne , obvious redness accompanied by swelling, etc.


To reduce the redness of a pimple, apply ice to the area every half hour. It is important to cleanse your skin 2 - 3 times per day to remove dirt, oil, makeup and dead skin cells. A moisturizer should also be used, if you are using any acne  products like benzoyle peroxide to maintain the skins moisture.
