Products - An Overview:
there is no dearth of acne products in the
market. Some products promise to treat your acne in a matter of
minutes, while some claim to improve your confidence
along with regular acne treatment. Most of these
products work only for a short period of time as they
fail to address the root causes of the condition. Hence,
before buying any product understand the complex causes
of acne and determine for yourself if the acne
products you choose have the capacity to address
these causes besides treating the symptoms.
Causes of Acne
There are three main factors of acne. These include hormonal imbalance, toxic build up and genetic sensitivity of sebum glands to hormonal imbalance.
imbalance can be caused due to many medical reasons as
well as due to stress, insomnia and other lifestyle
related issues. Hormonal imbalance disturbs the
mechanism of the body and the secretion of glands like
the sebum oil glands. Hence, these glands secrete excess
of sebum which then combines with dead cells, debris and
toxins. This lethal combination promotes the growth of
acne bacteria and finally full-fledged acne. Acne can
also be caused due to toxic build up. Toxins enter our
body through food, water, air and other sources. If
toxins are not flushed out, they get stored in blood,
lymph and other tissues. If these toxins combine with
the excess of sebum, they inevitably give rise to
Another important reason why some people are more
prone to acne is the genetic sensitivity of the sebum
glands to hormonal imbalance. This sensitivity prompts
the production of excess oil and even toxic build up.
Therefore, some people tend to be more prone to acne as
compared to others.
2. Spot treatment products: Acne spot reduction products are aimed at clearing the scars and spots left behind by acne. Some common spot reduction products include facials, soaps, creams, gels, facemasks, herbal supplements and oral drugs. These products are ineffective in the long run as they merely work on the surface of the skin. The problem is that scars are embedded deep within the skin and hence they are not in the least affected with superficial treatment.
3. Beauty products: Many regular beauty products try to attract the attention of the consumers by offering soaps, cleaners, moisturizers, toners, facials and so on. Steamers and laser treatment products are also available in the market for professionals in the filed. People who try and cure acne with the help of such professionals have to bear the brunt of these harsh products indirectly and also have the misfortune of not being able to choose the least damaging products of the lot.
1.Acne medication: Acne medication are available in the form of creams, tonics and lotions. Antibiotics like tetracycline, Minocycline, adapalene and steroids, are especially popular. The popularity quickly dies down among people who get side effects like dryness and itchiness, redness and inflammation, nausea, light-headedness and even hormonal imbalance.
As most of the acne products work superficially, they are unable to match strides with the only genuine treatment for acne, namely the holistic approach. Based on natural cure, Holistic approach is extremely effective as it addresses the root cause of the ailment and not merely the symptoms. Also, Holistic approach does not rely on external remedies, but concentrates more on the internal healing mechanism. This is the reason why this approach can help you get rid of acne without any drugs. As Holistic approach promotes physical and emotional healing, a person using this approach finds the strength and the ability to deal with acne and cure it without resorting to artificial and inconsequential acne products.
