One of the most dreaded skin concerns of teenagers and adults
alike, acne can lower one's self-esteem, raise one's
self-consciousness, and with time disfigure one's face.
Almost everyone seeking treatment for acne has already tried
half-a-dozen or so options ranging from over-the-counter
ointments to prescription medication and has been left
disappointed. The problem is not that these products don't
work, rather it's that they aren't well-suited to treating the
cause of your particular form of acne.
What causes acne?
It is difficult to give such a simple question a simple answer
because the exact cause of acne is unknown and the factors that
trigger and/or precipitate an outbreak are many and varied.
Anything from hormonal changes, poor diet, and improper hygiene
to stress and lack-of-sleep can contribute to the formation,
enhance the severity, and prolong the lifespan of acne lesions
on the face and body. With that said, almost all acne
shares a few key characteristics.
