Acne is called white or slightly yellowish nodules the size of a pinhead, without inflammation. Acne can be either separate or grouped.
Acne - inflammation of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Acne develops most often at the age of 12-18 years. This is the most common skin disease and is present in 80% of adolescents.
The development of acne can be caused by various factors: hereditary predisposition, endocrine disorders, stress. The development of acne occurs as a result of increased sebum secretion from the sebaceous glands, which leads to blockage of their ducts and, as a consequence, to inflammation. These inflamed areas spread and deepen into the dermis, leaving traces of cyanotic color or scars on the skin. In the presence of acne it is desirable to observe a low-carbohydrate diet.
Symptoms: appearance on the face( eyelids, cheekbones and whiskey), sternum, back of white or yellowish nodules.
What's going on? The cause of acne is oily skin with increased sebum secretion. If you do not perform skin cleansing procedures, fat accumulates at the terminals of the sebaceous glands, and this, in turn, creates conditions favorable for the inflammatory processes.
What does do? If you have oily skin, you need to wash your face in the morning and evening, not with ordinary tap water, but with boiled water at room temperature. Oily skin areas should be washed thoroughly in the evening with a special cosmetic liquid soap. Better yet - wash your face with water decoctions of herbs or spilled tea.
