Fast facts on Acne
Here are some key points about acne. More detail is in the main article, acne range in severity, from blackheads to cysts. They happen when the sebaceous glands become more active, dead skin cells clog the pores, and sometimes an infection develops, acne often occur in adolescence, but they can affect people at any age.
What Is Acne and What Causes It?
Acne is a condition of the skin that shows up as different types of bumps. These bumps can be blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or cysts. Teens get acne because of the hormonal changes that come with puberty. If your parents had acne as teens, it's more likely that you will, too. The good news is that, for most people, acne goes away almost completely by the time they are out of their teens.
The hair follicles, or pores, in your skin contain sebaceous glands (also called oil glands). These glands make sebum, which is an oil that lubricates your hair and skin. Most of the time, the sebaceous glands make the right amount of sebum. As the body begins to mature and develop, though, hormones stimulate the sebaceous glands to make more sebum.
Pores become clogged if there is too much sebum and too many dead skin cells. Bacteria especially one called Propionibacterium acnes can then get trapped inside the pores and multiply. This causes swelling and redness, the start of acne.
If a pore gets clogged up and closes but bulges out from the skin, you're left with a whitehead. If a pore gets clogged up but stays open, the top surface can darken and you're left with a blackhead. Sometimes the wall of the pore opens, allowing sebum, bacteria, and dead skin cells to make their way under the skin and you're left with a small, red bump called a pimple ( sometimes pimples have a pus-filled top from the body's reaction to the bacterial infection ).
Clogged pores that open up very deep in the skin can cause nodules, which are infected lumps or cysts that are bigger than pimples and can be painful. Occasionally, large cysts that seem like acne may be boils caused by a staph infection.
Summary of external factors, the cause of acne
- Production of excess fat
- Clogged pores
- Dead cells clog pores
Skin care for treatment acne
PROUD Acne Prone Skin Serum main contains Zinc PCA, EGF and Green tea extract
helps control acne and decrease sebum secretion while helping the skin retain its humidity.
The mechanism of action of Zinc on acne decrease inflammation caused by acne, perhaps through inhibition of the enzyme that catalyses the production of dihydroxytestosterone, a hormone that controls sebaceous gland activity. Zinc is also an antibacterial, its salts are used to control regulates the sebaceous secretions,
Zinc PCA very hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs large quantities of water. A relatively simple molecule, it is naturally produced by our bodies and is one of the components of “natural moisturizing factor”, which our skin produces to slow down water loss.
Zinc-PCA offers the benefits of PCA and those of the zinc and, maybe, something more. For example, zinc PCA ( but not zinc alone ) seems to decrease sebum secretion by oily skin
If you have oily, acne-prone skin, Zinc PCA is one of the actives to put on your "TO TRY" list.
It's a synergistic association of two great things: Zinc and L-PCA. The Zinc part is there to help normalize sebum production and limit the proliferation of evil acne-causing bacteria. L-PCA stands for pyrrolidone carboxylic acid and it's a key molecule in the skin that helps with processes of hydration and energy (it's actually an NMF, a natural moisturizing factor).
L-PCA is not only there to hydrate the skin, but it also helps to increase the efficacy and bioavailability of zinc. test done by the manufacturer shows that Zinc PCA reduces sebum production statistically significantly after 28 days of application measurements show that Zinc PCA has strong anti-microbial activity against P. acnes and other bacterial strains.
All in all, definitely a goodie for oily, acne-prone skin.
Epidermal Growth Factor ( EGF ) were discovered in 1986 by two scientists, who received a Nobel Prize for determining how EGF function.
Though the epidermal growth factors are in your body already. They’re naturally occurring proteins found in the fibroblast cells of our skin that regulate cellular growth. All that really means is they play an important role in maintaining youthful, healthy skin structure and function.
When applied they actually regenerate your skin—even skin that’s severely damaged from the sun, the aging process, and burns. When our skin has been damaged, EGF’s work by attracting cells to a wound site in order to trigger healing response.That release accelerates the process, promoting skin tissue repair and regeneration and stimulating collagen production.
“Wound healing” EGF also reverse the harmful effects of UV rays by promoting the growth of new cells, which replace the cells injured by ultraviolet radiation. Because of the regenerative properties, EGF are incredibly valuable for anyone concerned with preventing the signs of aging and reversing them. EGF have been proven to increase skin tone, texture, elasticity and firmness. They’ve also reduce hyperpigmentation, age spots, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. EGF are also highly effective for oily and acne-prone skin, EGF work to rebuild and heal the skin quickly.
Green Tea Extract
Green tea extract can help improve the lesions, redness, and irritated skin that acne causes, contains substances called catechins. These plant-based compounds, or polyphenols, have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibiotic properties. They also attack free radicals.
Green tea is especially rich in epigallocatechin gallate ( EGCG ), a polyphenol that can improve acne and oily skin. In addition to having anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial properties, EGCG lowers lipid levels making it effective at reducing sebum (oil) excretions in the skin.
