KEY CAUSES AND FACTORS FOR ACNE?
The reason comes from within:
• Entering puberty, the sex hormones increase, causing the sebaceous glands to become active, thereby causing the pores to become clogged. In addition, a few years before menopause, some women in their forties and fifties may have acne again due to abnormal hormone levels.
• Stress, prolonged stress, lack of sleep
• A diet high in sugar, high in fat and hot spicy substances causes body heat
• Due to heredity
• Dirty environment causes bacteria to accumulate on uncleaned skin
• Due to change in water source
• Facial cleanser, lotion, skin oil, care mask, sunscreen etc…
Acne forms and develops quickly if not treated in time
IDENTIFY 9 FREQUENT TYPES OF ACNE
• Acne Cam
Acne bran are tiny dots that appear in many areas of the nose, chin, and cheeks, making your skin rough and less smooth.
This is the most common and common type of acne on all skin types. Blackheads form due to a mixture of oil, dirt and dead cells on the face. Blackheads are usually hard granules.
Blackheads are usually concentrated in the T-zone and cheeks near the nose. Long-standing blackheads will make your pores bigger.
+ Whiteheads are basically the same as blackheads, the only difference is that whiteheads do not open pores, but clogged pores, because they are not exposed to air, so they do not change the color of acne to black.
• Sebum Fibers
+ Sebaceous fibers are not actually a type of acne, but because the symptoms are quite similar, many people are confused.
Sebaceous filaments are formed by a mixture of bacteria, sebum lipids and dead cells around the hair follicle. Sebaceous filaments are quite similar to whiteheads, but when removed, they are small, long and white fibers without acne.
+ Sebaceous fibers are common in the chin area under the lips and on the sides of the nose. If the skin is normal, you will not see the sebaceous fibers, but when you stretch the skin, you will see the white white heads growing side by side. After the sebaceous filament is removed, the pore containing that sebaceous strand will be filled in accordance with the skin turnover cycle.
• Pimples Hidden Under The Skin
This type of acne develops when blackheads and whiteheads become inflamed, forming small red or pink bumps on the skin, often without a pimple. Others are hidden deep under the skin, hard to see from the outside unless the skin is stretched or used a dermatoscope to see clearly.
This type of acne is very sensitive to the touch, if you squeeze or squeeze the acne will make the inflammation worse and can lead to scarring.
• Inflammatory Acne, Cystic Acne
Purulent acne is a new development of hidden acne. The identification is quite similar to a whitehead with a red dome surrounded and swollen. The bumps often have a lot of white or yellow pus inside, so they look quite large.
+ Absolutely do not squeeze until the white head appears clearly. Moreover, this is just the stage of nearly ripe acne, if not squeezing all the kernels, it will make the infection worse and spread to the adjacent skin.
• Headless Acne
+ Tumors are much more serious than pustules, cystic acne develops deep inside the skin and is very painful when formed. The most obvious manifestation is a large, inflamed pimple that is hard to the touch and does not see a pimple.
• Eel Vein Acne
This is the most severe form of acne. Cystic acne is very large, formed in patches, filled with pus deep inside the skin and is quite soft, looking like blisters.
+ Like cystic acne, cystic acne is very painful if accidentally touched. The risk of scarring, even pitted scars is very high
• Endocrine Acne
+ Hormonal acne is not fixed in any of the above types of acne. However, we can identify hormonal acne by acne location and return cycle. Usually hormonal acne will develop around the mouth, chin, and jawline and some other places.
+ Here are some hormonal acne locations, which will reveal to you better understand some of the body's problems that are being "alarmed" by acne.
