By Somdev Mukherjee


If you value your looks and facial beauty then it is quite certain that acne will seem like a bane to you. In fact this can turn to be a curse for life too if timely and proper care is not taken to bring the condition under control. It is to be remembered that though acne usually arises during the teenage years its effects can last long beyond these years. No wonder why skin specialists advice on advocating the right skin care measures at the very onset of acne.

Acne is basically caused by the effect of the sebaceous glands present in the skin as triggered by the secretion of certain hormones in an imbalanced manner. Here are some measures to suitably take care of acne-affected or acne-prone skin:

  1. The skin needs to be exfoliated on a periodic basis. The dead cells blocking the pores in the skin can thus be got rid of. This way, with the skin pores remaining unclogged, there will be no excessive oil secretion by sebaceous glands that leads to acne aggravation.
  2. Shunning of harsh skin care products that cause the skin to become dehydrated. The action of such products causes the sebaceous glands to secrete more oil and can thus worsen acne conditions.
  3. Making use of a good non-oily moisturizer that will prevent dryness of skin and help keep it soft and supple. This will also go a long way to keep acne at bay.
  4. Resorting to following a daily regimen of cleansing, toning and moisturizing (done twice a day) will bestow skin health and will keep skin free from acne and a host of other problems.

Now, the suitable care for acne-affected skin comprises of not only external skin care but internal health care as well. Fresh vegetables, fruits and some nuts that encourage in alkali production in the body constitute the right acne diet. Caffeine that stimulates hormone production is to be a strict no-no while intake of dairy products, refined and cooked carbohydrates, fats and meat ought to be restricted.
