What Causes of Acne

What Causes of Acne?

Like in any other skin diseases and disorders, acne may be caused by a number of reasons. In addition, there are lots of contributing factors to the fact that until now, there is still no complete cure for r the skin disease. These factors may range from the food items you eat and the body’s response to such, and to the methods you use in preserving your body and skin healthy.

Medically, there are three main causes of acne:

• hormonal imbalance
• bacteria P. acnes
• over production of the oily substance sebum by the sebaceous glands

Diet plays major roles in acne development. It is chiefly the lack or the addition of certain nutrients from the food items you consume. Under certain conditions, the body may act in response to the food item through the secretion of some hormones that may bring about the onset of acne. According to studies, the chemical balance or imbalance of the body may be due to the body’s reaction to certain chemicals, and in some cases hormones, found in foods.

Research studies strongly indicate that the good bacteria or the probiotics greatly help in the maintenance of the skin and in the elimination of the causes of the skin disorders. These bacteria are known to have the properties to eliminate toxins from foods that were not properly digested in the digestive tract due to the absence of a number of essential nutrients. Sometimes, these toxins are eliminated through the skin in the form of acne or eczema.

In line with this, the friendly flora found in the intestines may decrease through an unhealthy diet or erratic lifestyle. In cases like this, the toxins produced through unprocessed food may manifest as digestive or skin disorders. One of which is acne.

To stress the point, it is certainly not the food item that triggers the outbreak of acne but the process of decomposition of certain food items in the digestive system which adds to the aggravation of the acne breakout.

It is not only food that are proven to be the cause of acne (though the relation of the two are not yet firmly established), also the improper digestion. Often, this is caused by lack of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. For this reason, the body may not be able to absorb the essential nutrients of the food items thus weakening the immune system. In return, the white blood cells present in the skin tissues are more susceptible of being eaten or invaded by the bacteria. Thus, even if your nutrient intake may be sufficient and you have a well-balanced diet, the spreading of acne bacteria may be unhindered. This may be corrected through taking food supplements.

Cosmetics may also inhibit the onset of the acne through the chemical found in them. It is not ideal for an acne-afflicted person to use oil-based cosmetics, not even those that are oil free. Legally speaking, such cosmetics may really have no oil content in them; however synthetic oil may be as equally bad as those of organic. Additionally, oil-based cosmetics will further increase the oil present in the skin, thus allowing more oil as breeding ground for P. acnes bacteria. Water-based cosmetics may also worsen the acne condition in some cases for they may contain certain chemicals in which the skin tissue may react. To be safe, an acne-inflicted person must at any rate, avoid the use of cosmetics.

Moreover, recent finding show that stress may trigger an acne breakout. It has been established in some studies that the stress is one factor which may aggravate the condition of acne.

Weather may also contribute in worsening acne breakouts along side with heat and humidity. On the other hand, it is not good to wash the skin as often as you think you should. A limit of two times a day is recommended by dermatologist for scrubbing or rubbing the face may only proliferate the bacteria thriving “in” the skin. Note that acne-inducing bacteria cannot be found in the upper layers of the skin rather, they are deep-seated in internal skin layers.

Lastly, scratching the pimples is not good as it may only infect the skin.
