In today’s day and age, people and teenagers alike tend to gravitate toward quick fixes and easy cures. The only problem with that is acne can’t be cured with a pill or antibiotic. Those solutions are usually only temporary and can cause health problems if used long-term.
Many doctors and dermatologists prescribe drugs like Lymecycline and Doxycycline, which work temporarily, but once the last round of drugs have been consumed, acne comes back. It’s not advisable to consistently take drugs like these for long periods of time as they can cause antibiotic resistance and other health issues. These antibiotics kill excess bacteria on the skin, but they do not reach the underlying cause of acne. They also cause uncomfortable side effects like upset stomach, dizziness, and can increase sun sensitivity. And yet, this is the solution that some people choose simply because they don’t see another way.
The root cause of acne is that acne sufferer’s skin cells shed far more than the average person’s, especially when it comes to excessively oily skin like that of a teenager’s. Someone who does not have acne sheds skins cells typically once per day. A person with acne will shed skin cells up to 7 times per day. And the cause of this shedding? It stems from hereditary factors. If you have acne, it comes from your genes and as you can imagine, those are hard to alter. Drugs like Accutane, antibiotics, and even birth control are only short-term solutions. Solutions whose side-effects can be dangerous in the long-term, not work efficiently for the entire duration of their consumption, and if they do work, only work for short periods of time.
What most people don’t realize is that their acne can be cleared using methods of lifestyle change and consistently applying the correct products in the right amounts with the best ingredients.
Acne is embarrassing and can cause lack of confidence and motivation. Not only does it impact daily life, but it is also painful to deal with.
