What do you know about acne?


      One of the biggest problems faced by many people is acne which looks like a never-ending battle to beat acne. But you have to first know what types of acne is on your face and how to remove it. There are many medicines in the market to reduce acne but some of them are effective and some are not. To know more about acne treatment, then be with me through this blog.

 Here is everything you need to know:

 What are the causes of acne:

              One of the biggest issues for acne are pores (hair follicles) of the face, when they are blocked then this situation occurs. They are blocked by a combination of dead skin cells and sebum (natural oil produced by skin). This is also the major reason for blackheads and whiteheads and pimples. If your acne is severe  (worse), then it may also cystic acne, which means the infection is gone deeper and then it becomes like a bump of pus. So it becomes necessary to know deeply about it.

Types of acne:

Here are 5 types of acne given below:

1) Whiteheads:

         This occurs just because the hair follicle opening is blocked when you piling it up once. To pretend white head you should use topical spot cream, retinoid cream (as the way to pretend more). They help to clog pores.

2) Blackheads

       This is also a white head but just because of being exposed to oxygen, which oxidizes particles to turn into black. Salicylic acid is best for it because it contains oil-soluble and its small molecular structure helps to bind the blockage due to breakage of ‘glue’.

3) Pimples

        Pimples are the overgrowth of the bacteria called P.acne, which creates problems of redness, pain, swelling, and sometimes pus. First advice does not break them because it spread the bacteria on another side of faces white create more pimples on face and also it takes time to go away from the face.

To treat this, you should use this DIY, lightly press it with a hot flannel or cloth (not too much warm) to open your pores, and then dab tea tree oil for a fresher ginger piece onto the blemish, which has antibacterial properties.

Another DIY is, just apply a piece of the peel of banana onto the pimple which helps to soak the pimple but also it took time and help to remove spot as well.

4) Nodule

        It’s solid, painful (below the surface), large and unlike cyst, it has a head, and lumps of dead skin and sebum will remain whole and live for months and weeks. Retinoids and salicylic acid can be used to help unclog it and if you can take the advice from your doctor, then it becomes easy for you to handle this problem.

5) Cyst

       The cyst is more painful, red, larger than whiteheads and you should never try to break it otherwise you have to face more than that cysts on your face. It may spread the bacteria which means it took longer to go away.

What is the best type of makeup for acne-prone skin?

The best makeup for acne-prone skin is Neutrogena skin-clearing Liquid makeup, which contains 0.5% salicylic acid (in low quantity) and Aloe-Vera which helps to soothe inflammation. Salicylic acid removes excess oil and exfoliates dead skin cells, working as a pipe cleaner to keep pores clear.
