So who gets spots?

Look we all have one thing in common, no matter how perfect we thing we are or no matter what gender you are we have all experienced spots. The only difference is some people suffer more than others. Acne is common in teenagers and young adults (between 14-19 years old). Most people find that there is an improvement in their symptoms as they get older.

So now we have found a common interest we can start to share our methods on what we feel is the best course of action to tackle this problem and to try to prevent those embarrassing moments that we have all faced.

So lets start by breaking the myths about spots and acne.

The best place to start would be to define the term “spot” (zip, pimple). So all you need to know is that a small inflammation of the skin caused by the oil glands beneath the skin becoming inflected and fill up with pus. Blockage caused by excess sebum mixing with dead skin cells at the opening of the gland, resulting in the formation of black heads.

But a number of factors – including hormones, bacteria, some medications and genetics – play a role. Contrary to popular belief, chocolate and greasy foods don’t give you spots.

There are simple ways to reduce your chances of a breakout:

1. Watch what touches your face: anything that increases the oil production increases your chances of getting spots. Keep your hair clean. Try not to rest your hands or telephone receiver on your face and avoid tight clothes or bag straps that rub your skin. Pollution and high humidity can also cause spots.

2. Wash spotty areas with a gentle cleanser: facial scrubs, astringents and masks generally aren’t recommended as they can irritate the skin. Excessive washing and scrubbing can make acne worse.

3. Don’t pick or squeeze your spots: it may be tempting, but it can cause infection and scarring.

4. Avoid irritants: using oily or greasy makeup, sunscreens and hair products can make spots worse. For some people, the sun worsens acne and some acne medications can make you more susceptible to the sun’s rays. Use a sunscreen that doesn’t clog your pores.

5. Use a cream containing benzoyl peroxide: research shows that these products help to unblock pores, kill bacteria, and reduce oiliness. They can be used on blackheads, whiteheads and inflamed spots and are available over the counter at your pharmacist. For persistent acne, your doctor can prescribe antibiotic creams and gels, oral antibiotics or the contraceptive pill. For severe acne, dermatologists can prescribe isotretinoin (a vitamin A derivative).

Complications of acne

Most people have a mild form of acne that usually clears up after their teenage years, but sometimes more severe complications may develop if you have moderate or severe acne.

Scarring. Up to one in five people with acne have scarring that is socially noticeable. If you pick and squeeze your spots, you may get ‘ice pick’ scars. These are initially purple in colour before fading to a whitish colour. Rarely, ‘keloid’ (lumpy, painful and itchy) scars may develop on your chest and back.

Hyperpigmentation (your skin becomes darker in the areas affected by acne). You’re more likely to have hyperpigmentation if you have a dark skin tone.

Psychological problems. Acne may cause you to have low self-esteem or feel angry about the appearance of your skin, especially if you have scarring.

So guys lets pass on some of that wisdom by sharing with our readers anything that may help people that are suffering with acne. Lets not forget “the view of many is far more influential then the view of one”…

 

Talk to your GP if your acne is making you feel particularly low.
