Hormonal Acne FAQs
Acne is a very common skin ailment that causes unsightly spots and unbalanced skin to appear. Acne occurs when certain hormones cause sebaceous glands to produce too much oil that plugs the pores and therefore causes acne. This condition often causes the skin to turn red, be inflamed, and even feel hot when touched. Acne usually appears on the face, but it can appear on the back and chest as well. Fortunately, these areas can be targeted with acne treatment in Melbourne.
- Whiteheads are formed when the sebum and bacteria are trapped below the skin’s surface.
- Blackheads are formed when the sebum oxidises around the opening of pores.
- Papules are formed when the walls inside pores break and white blood cells enter to try and fight the bacteria that have grown there. This clash causes skin to turn red due to inflammation. Papules can be identified due to having a raised red area of skin around the pore.
- Pustules are advanced papules. They look like whiteheads when white blood cells have reached the surface of the skin.
Although the hormonal fluctuations that cause acne usually happen during the teen years, they are known to affect adults as well. Some women experience hormonal swings during their menstrual cycle, pregnancy and menopause that can cause acne breakouts. However, acne outbreaks can also happen to adults who are genetically predisposed to it or who are experiencing a side effect of certain medications, such as steroid drugs or anticonvulsants.
- What Should You Avoid Doing with Acne?
- Using strong cosmetic products
- Using very hot or cold water on the affected areas
- Over cleansing affected areas
- Leaving makeup on when you go to bed
No, as long as you clean it off every night. However, if you notice any breakouts along the sides of your temples, the hair creams and gels you use may be aggravating your acne. If this is the case, you should change the brand you use.
Acne usually goes away by itself once puberty ends. However, some adults continue to struggle with acne. Fortunately, most types of acne can be treated with an appropriate acne skin treatment.
