Treatment of acne-prone skin

Treatment of acne prone skin

Acne is a chronic inflammation of the sebaceous glands. Its appearance is mainly localized in areas rich in sebaceous glands (face, chest, upper back). The appearance of acne (acne) is typical at the beginning of adolescence, when the gonads begin their hormone production and the hormone levels have not yet reached their final balance.

The first step in the development of acne is the increase in sebum production of the sebaceous gland and the narrowing of the outlet tube. The sebum that accumulates in the sebaceous gland gets into the skin cells, where it accumulates and becomes infected.

Why does it form?

The development of acne can be caused by many factors: Among the causes of acne, one must first suspect an internal problem, such as problems with the intestinal system, liver dysfunction (for example, the liver cannot break down ingested toxins, so it uses the skin to remove waste products), gallstones, intestinal worms, intestinal inflammation . In any case, the appropriate investigations must be carried out, i.e. a complete blood test, an assessment of the condition of the intestinal system, the liver, and a parasitological examination. The disease detected in this way must be treated, the course is prescribed by the appropriate specialist. Internal foci of inflammation can also be behind the disease. (purulent tooth root, tonsillitis, urinary tract infections). One of the root causes of acne is circulatory disorders, which can be remedied with sports and saunas, but then we have another problem, since we lose a lot of mineral salts through sweating, which can also be the root cause of acne. In such a case, the removed minerals must be replaced.

  • Enzyme deficiency can also cause acne, among others, the lack of lipase and amylase enzymes can trigger acne. Then the rashes appear after eating fatty and sugary foods.
  • An allergic reaction to sunlight, certain cosmetics, or foods (e.g. chocolate, spices, oil seeds, citrus fruits, etc.) can also increase acne formation.
  • Hormonal changes, polycystic ovaries, immune disorders, hormonal changes during adolescence can also be behind the development of acne.
  • Patients with oily skin already produce more sebum, which is why they are more prone to acne.
  • Steroid-containing treatment significantly increases the chance of developing acne skin.
  • Genetic predisposition
