Visitors: 331

There is nothing like having beautiful, healthy, blemish free skin. It's one of the first things you notice about a person. For some of us who suffer from Acne, having that gorgeous skin tone can be a battle. Acne comes in various types and levels of severity. One person may get an occasional whitehead, another breakout with pink bumps under their skin, and yet another have large painful cysts that cause scarring. All Acne and Skin Blemishes, whether mild or severe can be broken down into 2 basic categories, non-inflammatory and inflammatory.

Non-Inflammatory Acne. . . . the non-inflammatory version consists of 2 types of comedones or blocked pores.

Whiteheads. . . . these are plugged up follicles that lie below the skin surface.

Blackheads. . . . enlarged plugs that are dark in color, and come up through the surface of the skin.

Inflammatory Acne. . . . inflammatory acne has comedones that are inflamed due to bacteria buildup in the clogged follicles.

Papules. . . . hard bumps that are pink in color.

Pustules. . . . small round bumps that appear red and yellowish with a white center.

Nodules. . . . lumps that are very large and painful, that become lodged deep under the skin surface, and can cause scarring.

Cysts. . . . pus-filled lesions that become painful, lie deep under the skin and carry a high potential for scarring.

No matter what kind of acne you have, preventing and clearing up acne starts with taking simple steps to keep the skin clean. Acne is brought on by clogged pores which causes pimples to develop. Increased production of oils, fast shedding of dead skin cells, and bacteria are the 3 major factors in the development of acne. Once the follicle becomes plugged and the skin oils build up, bacteria has a place to live and breed. To help with the clearing up of acne, learn how to take better care of your skin.

Avoid touching your face all the time. Your hands contain oils and bacteria. Don't touch, squeeze, pick, or scratch your pimples or blemishes. Also read the labels on the lotions and cleansers you are using on your skin. Some of the products you are using right now may be loaded with chemical additives, and over drying your skin.

I have learned some amazing tips on how to take care of your skin, and what chemicals to stay away from in your skin care products. I have these tips on how to care of your skin, along with 5 basic secrets to clearing your skin here, [ ]
