What is Acne?

Acne happens when the pores in the skin are blocked and infected by debris and bacteria. However, acne isn’t always caused by not washing your face. It can have many other causes like hormones or dry skin. Whatever the cause, acne can be very distressing and difficult to live with when it’s hard to find something that works.

Acne is one of the most common skin concerns, and virtually everyone struggles with it at some point – especially during your teenage years. If you still have acne as an adult or your acne won’t go away when you’re in your teens, then your dermatologist can help you achieve clear skin with a few different treatment options.

What Are the Symptoms of Acne?

Acne can occur anywhere on the body but it’s most common in areas like the face, back, or chest.

Acne can present in a few different ways, but the most noticeable symptoms of acne include:

  • Redness
  • Inflammation
  • Sensitivity or pain
  • Pustules and papules
  • Texture

What Are My Treatment Options?

The best treatment option for you can depend on the type of acne and the cause. There are a variety of skincare treatments like chemical peels that can help exfoliate the skin and prevent breakouts. Your dermatologist may also prescribe retinoids to help boost skin cell turnover and reduce acne. These are used at home over long periods of time and are one of the most effective ways to combat acne. Your dermatologist can also assess your skincare regimen and recommend products to prevent breakouts.

How Do I Take Care of My Skin With Acne?

One of the most important ways to take care of your skin if you’re prone to acne is by keeping it moisturized and clear of debris. Using harsh or stripping products can make acne worse, so use a gentle, unscented, non-alcoholic, and non-comedogenic cleanser and moisturizer. At your dermatologist’s instructions, you might benefit from incorporating active ingredients like glycolic or salicylic acid to help exfoliate the skin and kill bacteria. If your acne is caused by hormones, you can talk with your regular physician about birth control as a way to reduce acne as well.

Acne can be extremely frustrating, but with the right approach and the help of a board-certified dermatologist, you can enjoy clearer, brighter skin and a reduction in breakouts.
