Women Acne Treatment post image

Acne is a common condition especially in females since the primary cause of acne is identified to be hormonal shifts in the body.

Female acne sufferers cannot be categorized only as adolescent females since adult and older females suffer from acne as well. However acne during adulthood or older ages basically requires a different treatment where the medications would be stronger and the skin care products would vary more based on individual cases.

Over the counter medications that can prove to be effective include gels and creams such  benzoyl peroxide, erythromycin and clindamycine. Depending on the severity of the acne such medication usually helps reduce acne however if the acne condition is serious oral medication or stronger antibiotics might be the only option.

Skin care products can do the trick especially if they contain ingredient holding healing properties. The moisturizers and face wash that are used for acne should be non comedogenic or in other words oil free. Comedogenic products can prove to be rather harmful for the skin therefore it is recommended that such products are completely avoided by acne sufferers.

Medication that varies a little bit from topical treatment includes tretinoin. Retionoids such as Renova and Avita are good for abating the acne condition. For females suffering from acne as a result of hormonal shifts birth control pills is a favorable cure in terms of keeping the hormones in balance as well as keeping the mood changes in check.

In cases where the acne is very severe and no other treatment is viable, accutane can be used for treatment. This is an oral isotretinoin which can cure acne permanently however the medication needs to be taken for a longer duration of time and its side effects are considerably harmful. It is recommended that pregnant females do not take this medication and refer to a dermatologist for further information.

According to research the cure that has proved to be more effective and less harmful is constant care for hygiene, diet and skin. Keeping a lookout for one’s health makes it far less likely for acne to develop. It also helps avoids suffering from series of side effects where the chances of permanent acne treatment is not guaranteed.

    Nicotinamide (Vit B3) pads are a woman’s best skincare secret. http://yhoo.it/fnAJtc

  • In addition to the drugs and therapies mentioned in the article, vitamin d3 and probiotics should be a staple of any acne treatment regimen. The probiotics help to replenish the good bacteria in the digestive tract that are killed off by antibiotics like Accutane, and the vitamin d3 helps to improve the overall quality of the skin, helping to create an environment that is not conducive to the bacterias that cause most acne.

  • Nice suggestions in your article plus a couple more from your commenters… worth a try:) I’d pass on Accutane however:/

  • Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder which is commonly seen in teenagers. Apply juice of raw papaya on swelling pimples or acne. You must wash your face twice a day. Also drinks plenty of water per day.

  • Recently finished using Proactiv and have to say for the first time in my life my acne has almost completely gone. I have had some success over the years, but this is the first treatment to really clear my skin. Really pleased.
