Acne Control And Good Health

The serious business of controlling acne outbreaks, is hampered at times by a number of misconceptions that many people accept. Number one is the saying, “it’s all part of growing up”. Even though the majority of people that suffer from acne, are first attacked during their teenage years, there are many other youngsters that pass through adolescence without displaying any acne symptoms whatsoever. It does not follow that they “haven’t grown up”, because they did not suffer from bouts of acne.

Of course, hormonal activity that occurs during puberty, does affect different people in different ways, and it is generally accepted that this increase in hormones, indirectly brings about acne symptoms. Some people can suffer from severe outbreaks of acne, whereas others only suffer the odd pimple.

Many other people suffer from acne later in life, even when they are in their thirties or forties, so there are other factors that can trigger bouts of acne. Researchers have found that there are just as many adults suffering from acne, as there are teenagers. This information alone, is enough to dispel the myth that acne is a condition of growing up.

The skin of the body is an essential organ and, in order to give it the best chance of controlling skin disorders, it needs to be properly cared for on a regular basis. General physical health is most important, and this starts with eating the proper foods, getting regular exercise and adopting regular sleep patterns. When the body is in good physical condition, it shows by giving the skin a fresh, natural look.

The skin itself should be groomed daily, by washing no more than twice a day using mild soaps, and by applying approved skin care products that will nourish, protect and care for the bodies largest organ. While it may be necessary to expose the body to the sun’s rays for short periods, care must be taken to apply sunscreen when outdoors, and to avoid the afternoon sun completely.
