This week we will be hosting a Q&A to help you understand acne, how to treat it, and what acne scar removal treatments work best.

Q: Why is it called acne?

A: It began as the Greek word acme, which means “high point”. The full name of the condition is Acne vulgaris.

Q: What are the causes of acne?

A: It begins in a hair follicle or pore. When it becomes blocked it gets irritated or infected and becomes acne. Hormones also cause acne by making skin extra-sensitive and prone to break out.

Q: What causes hair follicles to get blocked?

A: A buildup of contaminants often causes clogs.“Contaminants” include dirt, chemicals, cosmetics, dead skin cells, oil, pollen, etc. Irritation from mindless behaviors such as rubbing your chin, talking on the phone, or touching your face can also cause clogs. Acne is exacerbated by irritation, which is why it is best to keep hands off the face.

Q: What are common types of acne?

Blackheads are the mildest form of acne. They are usually not painful and just look like tiny dark freckles.
Whiteheads are similar to blackheads, looking like small white freckles. They are difficult to see and easy to treat.
Papules and pustules are known as zits or pimples. They come in a range of sizes and can be painful. They show as red bumps on the skin and sometimes form pus-filled whiteheads.
Nodule/cysts are painful and deep, usually appearing as a hard bump under the skin, sometimes with bruise-like coloring over the surface. Can last for weeks and be larger than a coin.

Q: What’s the best way to treat acne?

A: Everybody is different, but most acne sufferers benefit from mild, balanced treatments that are a combination of clinical and holistic therapies, such as Zenmed’s Derma Cleanse System. Stay away from harsh chemical treatments and focus on nourishing your skin and body.

Q: How do I get rid of acne scars?

A: Acne scars are tough. The best way is to exfoliate regularly (and gently) and use an acne scar removal treatment such as the Zenmed Derma Cleanse System.

Q: Do holistic acne scar removal treatments work?

A: They do for some people, but I’ve not had any luck and have tried everything. The only acne scar removal treatment that has worked for me is the Zenmed Derma Cleanse System.

Acne is Called as 'Pimples','Pimples','Zits'. Acne is the mainly found skin form in the United States. Acne is a skin circumstance that occurs while your hair follicles turn into plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It is not caused through bacteria, even though bacteria take part in its growth.
Acne appears on top of the skin as follows:
• Crowded pores ("comedones"), also known as blackheads or whiteheads,
• Warm red bumps also called as pimples or zits,
• Pustules,
• Cysts (deep pimples, boils).
If you contain acne
• Wash your skin gently
• Try not to contact your skin
• Keep away from the sun
Acne is the mainly common skin problem in the United States. Acne affects 85 to 10 percent of people at a number of points in their lives, and it generally begins at teenage years. Acne can keep on into the 30s and beyond. In fact, 5 percent of people above 45 still have acne. People of all racial backgrounds find acne.
There are definite risk factors that may place you at risk for increasing acne. These consist of:
• Hormonal changes caused by young years or pregnancy
• Certain medications such as corticosteroids or birth control pills
• A diet high in distinguishing sugars or carbohydrates such as bread and chips
Causes of Acne
Acne initiates in the skin's sebaceous glands. These glands emit an oily substance called sebum. The sebum generally travels throughout a tiny hair follicle from the gland toward the skin's surface.
Acne occurs once the hair follicles turn out to be plugged with oil and asleep skin cells. Hair follicles are linked to sebaceous glands. These glands emit an oily material known as sebum to grease your hair and skin. The oil gland releases sebum (oil), which actions up the hair, outside the pore, and on top of your skin. The sebum keeps your skin lubricated and soft.
