Whether in adolescence or adulthood, everyone has had problems with pimples. But, what are the main causes of acne and how to treat it? ADCOS Beauty and Health responds!

What are the main causes of acne?

Do you know what are the causes of acne and the dreaded pimples ? They are caused by the obstruction of the sebaceous glands, responsible for the production of sebum in the skin, and can be influenced by several factors, such as excess oil , accumulation of bacteria, hormonal dysregulation and tendency to inflammation and accumulation of dead cells and tissues (keratin ).

The acne is very common in adolescence, but it can occur at any time of life and various parts of the body, being more frequent in areas like the face, back and arms. The most common types are grade I, which is characterized by blackheads or comedones; and grade II, which is the inflammatory form of the disease, such as pimples.

Both can be treated with dermocosmetics with the help of a skin cleaning done by an aesthetic professional. Follow-up with a dermatologist is also essential, since he is the professional who will indicate the best treatment for acneic skin .

Some people still insist on squeezing the pimples. Know that this is not recommended, as our hands and nails accumulate many bacteria. In addition, this is one of the main reasons for the appearance of acne blemishes and scars on the skin.

How to care for acneic skin?

If you have skin with acne , the first step is to have a routine of care to treat the areas already affected and prevent the appearance of new pimples. One of the most important steps is hygiene , which should be done with dermocosmetics developed for your skin type. However, the ideal is that the skin is cleaned at most twice a day, as over-cleaning can trigger a rebound effect, where the body will produce even more oil to replace the one that was removed.

Bet on specific products for acneic skin, such as those of the Acne Solution line , by ADCOS . Ideal for hygiene, Antiacne Soap cleanses the skin deeply, while preventing and treating acne, controlling oiliness, reducing and unclogging pores and even exfoliating the skin gently, without excessively drying out.

It is the first soap that has prebiotics , components that protect and stimulate the skin’s natural defenses, restoring strength and helping to recover skin immune protection. In addition, prebiotics stimulate the proliferation of good bacteria that inhabit our skin, fighting the bacteria responsible for acne. In addition, Antiacne Soap has salicylic acid, an active ingredient that reduces acne imperfections, unclogs pores and improves skin texture.

Do not forget to apply a sunscreen with a dry touch, as too much sun exposure can also cause pimples, which in this case are called sun acnes . To find out how to choose the ideal sunscreen for acne-prone skin, click here !

Adult acne: how to treat?

Anyone who thinks that acne is a problem exclusive to adolescence is wrong . It can happen in adulthood, especially in women over 30 years. It is usually found in the lower part of the face, known as the U zone (neck, chin and jaw), and can happen due to hormonal changes during menstruation, menopause , pregnancy and even Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

The adult acne should be treated as soon as possible because it can affect the social life of those who have the problem. The first step is to avoid using oily products, as they contribute to clogging the pores. After that, reinforce skin hygiene with dermocosmetics that work on skin renewal.

One of the products indicated is Antiacne Soap ! This launch of ADCOS is a great option for cleaning, as it cleans deeply without drying out, controls skin oiliness and still has a matte effect .

In addition to Antiacne Soap , bet on dermocosmetics such as Point Gel and Drying Tonic , which have assets capable of drying and healing pimples. And, of course, don’t forget that these techniques are not a substitute for medical treatment and follow-up.

Acne: can food influence?

Some habits can prevent the onset of acne. Among them is the consumption of foods that contain beta-carotene, a substance that fights the inflammatory processes of the skin. Therefore, bet on yellow, purple and green fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, papayas, beets, broccoli, arugula and cabbage.

Also increase your water consumption, as this helps to eliminate toxins that can aggravate skin problems, in addition to keeping your body hydrated. And be sure to reinforce skin hydration with dermocosmetics , even when it is oily.

An important tip is to avoid fatty foods and fried foods, as they stimulate the production of sebaceous glands, increasing the oiliness of the skin and favoring the appearance of acne . Red meats can also favor the appearance of pimples, as they have a high concentration of omega 6, a substance with pro-inflammatory effects. During treatment, opt for white meats, such as fish.

Many people have doubts about the relationship between the consumption of chocolate and the increase in pimples . However, what is harmful to the skin is the sugar present in the composition of the chocolate. Therefore, always prefer versions with higher cocoa percentages.
