•Hormones: The number one cause of acne is the production of sex hormones, known as androgen, that begins at puberty. This is why majority of acne sufferers are adolescents and teens. Hormones are responsible for then acne flare-ups during menstruation and pregnancy.

•When the sebaceous gland is stimulated by androgens, it produces extra sebum. In its journey up the follicle toward the surface, the sebum mixes with common skin bacteria and dead skin cells that have been shed from the lining of the follicle. While this process is normal, the presence of extra sebum in the follicle increases the chances of clogging — and acne.

•Stress: can also cause the production of hormones, such as cortisol, which can aggravate acne. Stress brings upon different hormone levels. With hormone changes the body prompts the skins oil glands to enlarge, secreting more oil. Which causes white heads, black heads and pimples.

•Oily or heavy make up: Heavy make-up clogs the pores and oily make-ups add more oil, which only adds to the problem if oily skin already exists. Cosmetics, especially certain moisturizers, foundations and pomades contain lanolin, petrolatum, vegetable oils, butyl stearate, lauryl alcohol and oleic acid.

What the skin needs is a product that clears pores and kills bacteria, thus preventing hair follicles from clogging and turning into acne. This is what you should be looking for if you want to get rid of those ugly acne.

Oil secretion from the skin, also known as sebum, is a greasy discharge from the sebaceous glands that provides a lubricant for our skin and hair. This is a natural occurrence and only becomes a problem when overactive glands start producing far too much oil than is required.

Overactive sebaceous glands can often be a hereditary condition, which is passed on from either your mother or father. Acne prone Oily Skin is common in teenagers because of changing hormonal activity and also during pregnancy and menopause due to hormonal imbalances. Other reasons for oily skin can include birth control pills, stress, cosmetic items and hot weather, especially when coupled with high humidity. Some also suggest that diet may play a part, so it wouldn’t hurt to eat a good balanced diet.

The good news is that oily skin helps to seal in moisture, which helps to keep the skin supple with fewer wrinkles, as we get older. But this is not much compensation for putting up with years of suffering and embarrassment is it. What you really need is a skin care treatment that is actually going to balance the flow of sebum and make a significant difference to our everyday lives.

Oil is important for moisturizing our skin but too much oil production can make the skin look shiny, dull looking and dirty. It can be prone to spots, blackheads, redness; swelling and enlarged pores that make our skin look coarse. You would think the logical option would be to keep washing this oil away, but this is an all too common mistake because too much washing will stimulate the oil glands to produce more oil to compensate for the loss resulting in an even more oily skin.

The best thing to do is find a good salon worthy brand, I would recommend Thalgo, as all of the products are marine based, and have algae derivitives in them. To maintain and control oil flow, you need to TWICE DAILY- cleanse (with a foaming or gel cleanser), Tone, and moisturise. You need to be particularly careful with which moisturiser you use, as some create MORE oil flow, rather than leveraging it. You also need to weekly add in to your skin regime, exfoliating twice a week, and doing a deep cleansing mask. The best mask bases for oily skin, are clay, as they are moisturising, nourishing, yet powerful. The Thalgo deep cleansing absorbant mask is fantastic, as it doesn’t leave you prone to breakouts the following week. Hope that helps =]

Different acne treatments work differently for different people ;-)

I did some research and talked to my doctor to find the most common causes of acne.

• Hormones: The number one cause of acne is the production of sex hormones, known as androgen, that begins at puberty. This is why majority of acne sufferers are adolescents and teens. Hormones are responsible for then acne flare-ups during menstruation and pregnancy.

• When the sebaceous gland is stimulated by androgens, it produces extra sebum. In its journey up the follicle toward the surface, the sebum mixes with common skin bacteria and dead skin cells that have been shed from the lining of the follicle. While this process is normal, the presence of extra sebum in the follicle increases the chances of clogging — and acne.

• Stress: can also cause the production of hormones, such as cortisol, which can aggravate acne. Stress brings upon different hormone levels. With hormone changes the body prompts the skins oil glands to enlarge, secreting more oil. Which causes white heads, black heads and pimples.

• Oily or heavy make up: Heavy make-up clogs the pores and oily make-ups add more oil, which only adds to the problem if oily skin already exists. Cosmetics, especially certain moisturizers, foundations and pomades contain lanolin, petrolatum, vegetable oils, butyl stearate, lauryl alcohol and oleic acid.

• Certain medications and steroids: Vitamins are good for your body, But an excess of vitamins B1, B6 and B12 can cause acne flare-ups. These vitamins are good for the skin, but avoid overuse.

• Diets: For some people, a diet that is high in refined carbohydrates and sugars can actually aggravate their acne.

• Over abrasive cleansing: Harsh exfoliators can damage skin and spread infections.

• Picking and squeezing: This can actually send the infection deeper into the skin and can cause scarring.

• Environmental irritants: such as high humidity and pollution. High humidity actually causes swelling of skin. Pollution is of course is a big cause for clogging your pores.

• Genes: Family members who are also acne sufferers. Acne is inherited and severe cases known as cystic acne usually come from heredity.

And..,

What the skin needs is a product that clears pores and kills bacteria, thus preventing hair follicles from clogging and turning into acne. This is what you should be looking for if you want to get rid of those ugly acne.
