Acne is an unpleasant skin blemish or skin condition as many sources might describe it. It’s uncomfortable for the person who has it as well as perhaps the person who avoids staring at it as they have a conversation with its host.
Our skin constantly develops dead skin cells. Unfortunately, we can’t naturally exfoliate all of these dead cells. So where do they go? They sometimes get mixed up with our natural oils, which eventually creates the nice plump zits or pimples as some might call it, to appear.
How does acne take form
We’ve included an image from The Pore Expert that might help you see the difference between a pimple on skin and a normal, non-pimply skin.
Here’s how acne grows:
- Pores connected to glands via follicles produce oil called sebum
- Dead skin cells are carried by the sebum into the follicles
- The follicles become inflamed or clogged as they try to naturally push through the skin.
- Then “Hello Pimples!”
Types of acne
Although acne is more obvious on the face, it can also occur on various parts of the body. It can appear on someone’s back, their arms, legs, neck, and just about every other place on the body. Not only that, but they come in different forms as well:
- Blackheads are black and can be very obvious because most of them clearly appear on the top of the skin.
- Cysts are very visible and sometimes most embarrassing because they are filled with pus.
- Papules are also visible but appear as small pink bumps.
- Pustules are usually tell you ahead of time when they are coming because it often feels a little sore. It starts off as a pink bump and then turns into puss.
- Nobules are painful and very visible because usually appear quite large.
- Whiteheads are the nicest of them all because they usually remain under the skin and are usually not visible.
How to eliminate acne
Many creams and even some of the most effective skincare regimes can be effective towards the treatment of acne, but we’re here to share one of the most natural ways to do it.
Light therapy not only regenerates collagen, rejuvenates your skin, and helps eliminate acne, but it’s also very helpful in keeping acne from its future formation, but first, take a look at what happens with acne after light therapy:
Light therapy is usually applied on a clean face. This means there are no lotions or potions necessary. Just let the act of light generate healing oxygen on your skin and watch your face become acne free. Just be sure to be very descriptive about your skin with your Esthetician or Dermatologist so they can treat you with the color of light that best suits your skin type.
