Before we get into the nitty gritty, you need to understand that there is no one cause of acne. When we say that everyone’s acne is different, we aren’t just saying that to appease your individuality. The truth is, so many things can influence acne. Some acne is caused by an imbalance of hormones, while others forms of acne can be caused by bacteria on your cell phone. Because there are so many causes of this annoying skin condition, there are also many treatments that may help you fight your troublesome pimples. What works for your friends or family may not be as effective for you, so keep in mind that a little trial and error may be involved before you have clear skin.
Who can be treated?
It’s not only teenagers who get acne. And some people may not be bothered by a spot or two, while others will find their self esteem impacted by a face fully masked by inflamed spots. We think that if you’re bothered by acne, no matter how old you are, it’s worth researching and experimenting to see what can help your skin look better. After all, if your skin doesn’t look healthy, it may not actually be working as it should!
