3 Most Common Skin Problems

Acne

Acne comes in a number of forms like whiteheads, blackheads, raised bumps or lumps filled with puss. While heredity, hormones and medications also cause this dreaded skin problem, overproduction of oil is often to blame. Acne is often perceived to be a problem of teens. Experts, however, insist this is also a common problem of over half of adult women.

One key to prevent this problem is by moisturizing regularly. Yes, this might come as a shock to those suffering from acne because of their oily skin. But as mentioned, acne is often caused by an overproduction of oil in the body. If you don’t moisturize, tendency is your oil glands will compensate for the lack of moisture and produce more oil. This can lead to build up that will clog pores and cause acne.

Choose moisturizers though that are gentle and non-comedogenic. Natural and organic products like Argan oil, almond oil, and olive oil are good examples. Argan oil contains a high amount of Vitamin E and vitamin E has been long a staple ingredient in skin care products because of its presumed antioxidant prowess. Vitamin E also is long believed to promote wound healing as well as help in minimizing scars.For a long time, Argan oil has been thought of as a treatment for certain skin conditions including dermatitis and acne however scientific studies to back this up are lacking.

Dermatitis

Dermatitis is a skin condition that can affect any part of the skin including the scalp. It is often characterized by scaly and itchy red skin. Often caused by an allergic reaction or irritation, anyone can be a victim of this problem.

Determine what caused the irritation and stay away from it. Find out what you are allergic to in order to prevent another attack. To get relief, hydrocortisone and some steroidal creams can help alleviate itchiness.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by redness and small, pus-filled bumps on the face. People who are easily flushed are prone to this problem. It is also common to menopausal women and those with a family history of this problem.

There is no known cure for rosacea since its cause remains unknown. However, people prone to this can stay away from activities that dilate the blood vessels. These include sun exposure, alcohol and hot foods and drinks. Also, avoid using facial products that are harsh to the skin.
