An easy skin care product guide to treating acne-prone skin

Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder with sebaceous (oil) glands connecting to the hair follicle containing fine hair.

If your skin is healthy, the sebaceous glands make sebum that empties onto the skin surface through the pore, an opening in the follicle. Generally, as the body sheds skin cells, the keratinocytes rise to the skin’s surface.

In acne, the hair, sebum, and keratinocytes (a type of skin cell) get stuck inside the pores and clog them. This process prevents the keratinocytes from shedding and keeps the sebum from reaching the skin’s surface. Due to the mixture of oil and cells, the bacteria that usually live on the skin grow in plugged follicles and cause inflammation.

Swelling, redness, heat, and pain are one of the primary symptoms of acne. When the wall of clogged follicles breaks down, it spills the bacteria into skin cells and sebum that come out as acne. Even though treatment can help prevent these signs with antibiotics by killing off any growths and fighting infection, patients are still prone to developing symptoms again when they leave antibiotic-free status during healing. 

Types of acne: 

  • Whiteheads: Plugged hair follicles that stay under the skin and create a white bump. 
  • Blackheads: Clogged follicles on the skin surface that opens up. They look black because the air discolours the sebum, not because of dirt. 
  • Papules: Inflammation usually appears as small pink bumps on the skin and can be tender to touch.  
  • Pimples: Papules with white or yellow pus-filled lesions which causes red bumps on the skin. It can be painful, and bursting can worsen the situation.  
  • Nodules: Painful solid lesions that are clogged deep within the skin. 
  • Cystic acne: Deep and painful pus-filled bumps. 

What causes acne: 

  • Having junk food 
  • Hormonal changes 
  • Excess oil production in the pores 
  • Growth of harmful bacteria in the pore 
  • Side effects of certain medications 
  • Generic history 
  • Age  
  • Excessive stress 
  • Pollution/ humidity 
  • Scrubbing too much 
What is the difference between acne and pigmentation? 
Acne scarring happens due to the change in the skin’s texture. But in hyperpigmentation, the surface remains unchanged. However, in both cases, the skin has inflammation and redness. This is because skin cells absorb more sun and may become irritated or even dry out after exposure. 
Acne and pigmentation are the two most unwanted guests on your face. However, you can bid farewell to acne and pigmentation through a proper skincare routine.
Lesser sebum secretion on the skin surface allows the harmful bacteria to penetrate deeper into the clogged bacteria that causes acne. Proper skin cleansing unclogs the dirty pores and sebum oil from reaching the skin surface and decreases the chances of acne breakout. A healthy and flawless complexion requires you: Use cleansers regularly before bed. Rinse well after use if needed (like when applying lotions). Avoid long-term sun exposure – avoid overexposure with natural UV protection. Prolixr’s Advanced Repair Foaming Cleanser consists of the goodness of sea algae, hazel, and beetroot. It rejuvenates the skin and opens the clogged pores; also, it has no paraben or harmful chemicals.
Cleansing pads: 
Cleansing pads are specially formulated to exfoliate your dirty pores and clean your skin from the roots. Cleansing pads are the one-stop solution for blocked pores, redness, inflammation, and pimples. In addition, these cleansing pads show instant results with the maximum strength acne medication. Rejusure’s salicylic acid cleansing pads deeply cleanse and moisturize your blocked pores without leaving any side effects on the skin. In addition, these pads contain aloe vera, which gives your skin a cooling and soothing effect. Cleansing pads are also beneficial in reducing skin infection-causing germs. Salicylic acid also helps remove excess oil and kill acne-causing bacteria. 
Salicylic acid mask: 
Some people might be a little hesitant while using face masks, but those are one of the most effective treatments for acne and pigmentation. A magic potion for skin cleansing, a salicylic acid mask wipes out the dirt and excess oil from clogged pores and gives you back your delightful skin.

Salicylic acid is a dermatologically suggested ingredient that can do wonders for acne-prone skin. Also, it is suitable for all skin types. Salicylic acid helps unclog pores, removes dirt, and regulates sebum secretion on the skin surface, which helps in lesser acne breakouts.
