What Causes Acne?                Nail care   Fashion    Makeup

Why, though, does this scourge appear during your teenage years at the very time you want to look your best? Because you are growing up. With the onset of puberty, skin glands increase their activity. The World Book Encyclopedia explains in simple terms what happens:   Each gland empties into a hair follicle that is, the little     bag surrounding each hair. Normally the oil would drain    out through a pore of the skin, but sometimes a pore      gets clogged and the oil cannot get out quickly enough.   The clogged pore now forms a blemish called a blackhead because the trapped oil oxidizes, dries, and turns black.

If the pore is so clogged that no air at all can get to it, then instead of a blackhead, a whitehead develops. A pimple develops when pus forms. Cysts are formed when germs breed in the backed-up oil. It is the cysts that leave permanent scars. Pimples do not scar unless they become infected because of squeezing or picking so dont squeeze or pick!

Interestingly, tension and emotional upsets can activate the skin glands. Some experience the blossoming of a large pimple just before an important event or before and during exams. So try not to be too anxious.

Is There a Cure?

Sad to say, there is no single treatment for acne. Dr. Sidney Hurwitz, an authority on the subject, points     out that there are medications available that can, in most cases, gradually help bring acne under control. Of course,    if the outbreak is severe and persistent, you should not   wait to outgrow it, but you may wish to consider seeking the   help of a dermatologist. He or she may prescribe     one of the several acne preparations available or even antibiotics.

Patience seems to be a key to successful treatment. Remember, the trouble built up over quite a period of time, so it will not clear up overnight. Unfortunately, many do    not stick to their treatment plan after they see initial improvement. For worthwhile results, it is important to    apply carefully any instructions given by your physician.

Teenage Sandra, mentioned earlier, says in her article for Co-Ed:  I guess it took about a year for my skin to completely clear up, but I could see changes in my skin within six weeks. Thus her doctor had warned: Dont   expect results overnight. Have patience.

Some have found that by taking care of their overall health, such as by getting plenty of exercise, being out      in the fresh air as much as possible, and getting enough sleep, their complexion benefits and their acne condition improves. It will also help to cleanse your skin thoroughly   to prevent perspiration mixed with dirt and pollution from clogging pores. Some doctors claim that diet plays a big part in controlling acne and recommend eating as little fat as possible.

Develop the Right Attitude

Dr. James Dobson recounts a conversation he had with a teenager, Darrell, who said: When acne does flare up, it can be devastating it really can knock you out. And even though you tell yourself,  I know where my priorities are   and I know that beauty isnt the most important thing, it    still affects your self-confidence.

However, if you cultivate an outgoing attitude rather than becoming introverted because of self-pity, you will find that  it helps a lot. When you do something for someone else, you become aware that other people also have problems, often much greater than your own. This can help you to feel better about yourself and at least helps keep things in the right perspective.


     Perhaps, though, you are one of the 20 percent of teenagers who are not troubled with skin blemishes.           If so, you may not fully comprehend the trauma and self-consciousness of those battling with such an embarrassing problem. Try hard not to tease, even in a good-natured way. Certainly, such cruel comments as crater face or pizza face would be uncalled for, no matter how humorous they may seem to some.
