Teen acne is a well-known topic and almost everyone has ever tried to find some effective teen acne treatment – maybe for him- or herself or at least for his/her children or close relatives. But the problem is that teen acne is not a thing which you can easily get rid of. It is a really intrusive and bothering thing and you will have to apply much effort and patience and devote much time to cure this nasty stuff.
Where does teen acne come from? Usually acne, especially in teen age, is associated with hormones, namely androgens. These are originally male hormones, but sometimes they gain hyperactivity and people have relatively high level of them, not depending on the fact, if they are boys or girls. This hyperactivity is quite common in adolescence, when the organism is growing rapidly and sometimes it as if cannot “calculate” all the needed parameters of own operation. Androgens stimulate production of sebum, which is oozed by corresponding glands inside the skin, and too much sebum is not good for skin – small holes (pores) in it called follicles, which contain hairs, get blocked and in such way acne appears.
How to treat teen acne? It is a very tough thing because the origin of teen acne lies within its bearer, and you should agree, that it is not easy to get inside oneself. First, attention should be paid on nutrition – you have to restore balance in your organism. Condition of skin depends much on presence of vitamins A and B complex. And of course the teenager in any case should not consume alcoholic drinks and smoke.
