Clear Acne Solution

Acne is a skin lesion that occurs on the face, neck or the back as a result of the effect hormones have on oil glands in the skin known as sebaceous glands. Acne is estimated to affect around 17 million people in United States each year. The condition usually affects young people between the ages of 12 and 25 due to changes in the hormone levels in the body.

What are the causes of adult acne? Acne occurs when the pores get blocked as a result of the excessive secretion of the sebaceous fluid. As indicated above, acne is common among adolescents, but acne among adults is not rare and treating acne can be a frustrating experience no matter your age.

Acne in adults may be classified into three types
1) Acne that recurs after the adolescent stage
2) Acne that appears for the first time in the adulthood and
3) Acne that appears during times of high hormonal changes like in the case of a pregnancy and consumption of birth control pills.
Acne that appears for the first time in adulthood needs medical diagnosis. In many cases, treating acne at the root cause with an anti-DHT formula is an effective solution.

Causes of Adult Acne
There are many culprits that contribute to acne. Oral medications, hormonal changes in the body, stress and pregnancy can all be causes of adult acne. Compared to teenage acne, adult acne can be more difficult to treat. The popular belief that chocolates and oily foods cause acne is actually inaccurate, and they actually do not have much influence in the formation of acne.

Treating Acne
Severe cases of acne should be treated by dermatologists though family physicians or general practitioners can treat normal cases. The goal of treating acne is to eliminate the existing acne and avoid its recurrence. Medications used to treat acne are intended to avoid the clumping of the cells in the follicles, control the bacteria, reduce inflammation and reduce the oil production in the glands. Medicines or drugs may be topical or taken orally, or a combination of both. Most common over the counter topical medicines used for treating acne contain benzoyl peroxide, resorcinol, salicylic acid and sulphur.
All these medicines are available in a variety of bases like gels, creams, soaps and lotions. While the benzoyl peroxide helps to reduce the oil production and also as a bacterium-killing agent, the remaining drugs are used to remove the blackheads and reduce inflammation. All acne treatments need to be used continually in order to prevent acne lesions from recurring.

Clearogen Foaming Cleanser is to be daily to reduce dirt, make-up and sebaceous oil build-up in the pores.

Clearogen Clarifying Toner balances oil production in the skin while reducing pore size.

Clearogen Acne Lotion reduces redness and inflammation on the skin while preventing DHT production and DHT attachment to the sebaceous gland. The most effective topical products for treating acne are anti-DHT products that control acne by eliminating the ability of DHT to cause excessive oil within the sebaceous glands. Finding a product that limits oil production and contains benzoyl peroxide will go a long way to helping you to clear skin.
