Why do I have Acne / Pimples ?


First of all Acne is genetic! That is all. You are predestined to either get acne or not. You may not see it in your parents or siblings, but somewhere down the line (Grandma or Grandpa perhaps) someone in your family passed it along to you.

Everyone has the same sebum, testosterone and hormones, so we can’t blame it on those – though those with a great deal of testosterone may have a bit more of an aggravated form. Acne is also more severe in humid climates. It is just in certain families there is a “special” vulnerability called “retention hyperkeratosis.” This is when deep in the pores an abnormally rapid (literally 4-5X faster than normal) build-up of dead cells, stick together and form a mass in the follicle. This then accumulates at a very rapid rate and forms the keratinous clog that will become a pimple.

Generally acne placement follows a pattern on your face regarding your age. Younger ones have it on the nose, forehead and chin, slightly older go to the cheeks, and adults can have it anywhere – but it is mostly on the jawline, forehead and chin.

Facial treatments are a great way to get acne under control and also depends on many factors, most importantly the severity of your acne, how often you have the procedure done and how consistent you are with your skin care regimen at home.

Glycolic and Salycilic facial peels are most beneficial to keep your acne under control. These peels are non-irritating. They work by loosening and removing aging cells, clogged oil and debris attached to the skin’s surface. Glycolic and Salycilic facial peels stimulate new cell production and increase collagen formation. These peels are oil soluble and lipophilic which means they are able to penetrate sebum filled follicles and clean out clogged pores, resulting in marked improvement in acne prone skin.

Why do some of us have to deal with the despair of acne while others (even relatives) have clear skin?

That is the million dollar question, and I am here to give you the answers, and also what you can do to tame the Acne Monster inside of you.
