Steven asks…

Does being deeply infatuated with someone cause acne?

I know it sounds kind of dumb but I haven’t had acne for 3 years (I am now a high school senior) and I’ve liked this girl A LOT for a couple months and my acne is starting to come back…

My grandma who is 94 once told me that’s what was causing it and I also heard from somewhere that having emotions can cause stuff like that.

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.


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.

Before trying any treatment, I suggest you read this informational source that listed the most effective acne treatments available:

Back acne, are caused from heat rash. Exposed to the sun, (even through clothes, the sun can find you), causes them to get permanently discolor. Any types of oil, can also burn the skin if they’re exposed to the sun!

Many beauty & hair products now have LABEL INGREDIENTS and DISCLAIMERS, specially makeup, they are required to put labels so consumers are aware to watch for chemicals: DBP, TITANIUM, MERCURY, HYDROQUINONE, or Toluene solvent, that causes cancer or harm us. In other words, less is MORE.

Could also mean: You’ve had a self-tanner mishap…or you have a benign condition called melasma that’s often associated with oral contraceptives, says Dina D. Strachan, M. D., a dermatologist in New York City. Doctors aren’t sure why some birth-control pills cause these dark patches on the forehead, cheeks, or upper lip, but they do know UV exposure makes them worse.

For one thing: Oral contraceptives can upset your skin, since hormones in BCP make pigment cells more sensitive to the sun, resulting in brown blotches.
Doctor’s advice: Talk to your doctor about switching to a low-dose estrogen formula, like Yaz or Ortho Tri-Cycles Lo, or the non-estrogen type of contraception known as the mini pill, says Sundaram. Wearing sunscreen will also help. “If you’ve had hyperpigmentation on the pill, you’re likely to be sensitive during a pregnancy too.” she says. In bulk cases, higher levels of hormones are to blame.

“Not all brown spots are the same,” Yasuhiro Suzuki, PhD, manager of R&D public relations for Pola Orbis a Japanese Company where in their data base contains 13 million skin samples for 23 years, developed a product H20Plus for the U.S. There are those spots caused by cumulative photodamage, often called sun spots or age spots, which usually appear on the cheeks, temples, back of the hands, freckles, which first emerge as a genetic gift from our parents but proliferate from sun exposure ad often fade or darken depending on the season; post-inflammatory pigmentation, which results from trauma to the skin; the melanoma, which, thanks to its association with fluctuations in female hormones, has been dubbed by dermatologists to be the gold standard for skin lightening (which have proven contributed to cancer in rodents). Melasma responds well to hydroquinone,; sun spots do not. “All of the hydroquinone in the world isn’t going to to get rid of a sun spot.” says New Jersey-based derma Jeanine Downie, MD. “If you’re going to scratching or picking at that spot, you’re making the pigmentation issues even worst. Specially those with eczema or psoriasis, hands off! You’re going to have a dark patch there for either months or years depending on how unlucky you are.” “Hyperpigmentation that’s hormonally induced is the most difficult to treat because no matter what you do, it has a memory and always seems to return with the slightest amount of sun exposure. Think of it this way, if you have a zit and you walk out the door without sunblock on, you’re getting darker, and so is your pimple. You’re basically tanning your pimple.”

I’ve been protecting myself from the sun since age 9, by using umbrella or floppy hat. But no matter, I got Discoid Lupus, but it took 12 years for them to fade. Other than that, I’ve had flawless skin all my almost 60 years of my life. Exfoliate using a wash cloth, using bath & body wash, each time you take a shower, & stay out of the sun @ least 90% of the day.

Any skin-lightening products containing hydroquinone would be considered new drugs, according to the proposed FDA regulations. The products would require FDA approval before being sold to the public and would only be available with a doctor’s prescription.
Skin Creams, Gels, Soaps and Lotions Marketed as Skin Lighteners and Anti-aging Treatments: May Contain the Toxic Metal, Mercury.
