About 60 percent of the population suffers from acne to one degree or another during their lifetime.

It usually appears in adolescence and disappears on its own until the early twenties, but about a third of patients with the disease will remain with it for decades to come.

It is common to divide the types of acne into 2 main groups, the first is acne vulgaris - the most common form of acne, and the second is acne conglobata - a more acute form of acne that manifests itself in the formation of deep cysts that form scars on the skin.

Acne, also known as pimples, is an inflammation of the mammary glands and hair follicles.

It is a bacterial skin disease in which the wounds appear as a poor response to body hormones or a lack of vitamins such as B vitamins or vitamin D and C.

A deficiency in these vitamins will make the body more exposed to bacteria, stress and wounds in the skin.

Another reason that can cause the appearance of acne sores is a hormonal imbalance between three main hormones in the body: estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.

The imbalance can cause excess fat secretion from the mammary glands, blockage of the hair follicle and accumulation of dead skin cells, which creates acne.

In addition, mental stress can also be a cause of illness, as it causes an increase in hormonal output from the adrenal glands.

Therefore the treatment must be external and internal together.

Acne will most often appear in areas where there is a proliferation of mammary glands, with the most common spot being the face, but acne can also develop in the back and chest area.

During adolescence most sores will appear on the forehead, chin and cheeks.

Acne in adults will occur with high frequency around the mouth and chin.

Since this is a hormonal imbalance, acne treatment will begin with blood tests to see if there is an imbalance, and at the same time a clarification about the conduct of life.

For example, a population with a predisposition to acne will be more sensitive to stressful situations, such as before tests, soldiers during training or any change in life.

The clinic usually combines treatment that is internal and external, the combination of dietary supplements or vitamins, acupuncture to soothe the body and external antibacterial treatment and soothing the skin, natural and active peels as needed, face masks, vitamins applied to the skin, advanced dedicated equipment for acne.

The patient will receive home materials and guidance and will need to follow the instructions.

Regarding nutrition - there is no study that says that poor nutrition causes acne.

Things you did not know were causing acne

1. Oily cosmetic creams.

Acne is caused by a problem of blockage of the mammary gland (the lubricant released by the hair follicle), so the addition of chemicals with a thick and greasy texture only accelerates the process.

It is therefore important to undergo a skin diagnosis before buying a face product.

2. Excessive cleaning.

Excessive washing of the facial skin with soap more than 3 times a day creates irritation of the skin and a more massive secretion of milk pores and increased acne.

It is recommended to wash the face once in the morning and once in the evening to remove makeup and cleanse the face before bed.

3. Toothpaste.

You'd be surprised but fluoride-containing toothpastes can cause acne around the mouth and lips.

Can aggravate the acne condition.

4. Spicy food and nuts.

Although there is no scientific proof that there is a direct link between acne and nutrition, the exacerbation of acne can occur after eating particularly spicy foods, fatty foods and especially after eating nuts or other foods rich in salts.

5. Bodybuilding.

Use of growth hormones to build greater muscle mass (especially in women) causes a disturbance of the hormonal balance in the body and increased secretion of substances from the hair follicle and increasing or creating acne.

6. Vitamin deficiency.

Lack of B vitamins can exacerbate the appearance of sores. This deficiency often develops in stressful situations. People and especially young people sometimes suffer from iron or vitamin B12 deficiency anemia.

7. Unclean head hair.

It is important to keep the hair clean and away from the face. It is recommended to avoid applying gel to the hair or any other greasy substance which causes the sebaceous glands to clog and wash the hair on a daily basis.

The mistakes you make

Stop touching your face.

We touch the face once a minute on average, the hands that have touched the keyboard or table are a fertile pad for bacteria that are transmitted directly to the facial skin and aggravate the skin condition and infection.

And that's even before we start talking about the dirt each of us has on our nails.

2. Switch to talking on a headset.

The regular contact of the fingers with the touch screens serves as a fertile cushion for bacteria.

Pinning them forward later is an invitation to a pimple celebration

3. Replace a pillowcase with a pillow often.

Change bedding once a week and expect pillows twice a week, the pillow is a fertile pillow for bacteria and secretions from the face during sleep.

4. Regularly wash your makeup brushes.

Thousands of bacteria and fat accumulate on the makeup brush, and each contact with the surface transfers more and more bacteria that increase skin infection and aggravation of acne.

5. We reset the exfoliating masks on the face.

Itching and rubbing of the skin stimulates the milk pores for action in addition it is recommended to avoid greasy skin care products.

They are heavy, suffocating the skin and clogging the pores.

They make it difficult for the skin to breathe.

6. Wash your face when you get home.

Sweat and make-up are among the main causes that increase acne and even cause sores and blackheads, it is advisable to wash the facial skin as soon as you return from work day or from the gym.
