What Causes Acne?
 
   
  Acne is caused a number of things, but dirt isn’t normally one of
them. Acne blemishes form when dead skin cells mix with your body’
s nutritive (serum) oil, forming a plug in the hair follicle.

Dirt may play a role in clogging the follicle but more often than not,
the culprit of the plugged pore is "scale" or dead skin cells that slough
off the inner lining of your hair follicle.

Because dirt is not causing your acne, over washing your face or
body (more than 2–3 times per day) will not make your it better.

In fact, too much washing or overuse of harsh scrubs and “pore
strips” can actually strip the skin of the oil it needs to stay soft and
pliable. Over washing may stimulate your skin to create more oil,
thereby worsening the problem.
 
 
 
 
  Rising hormone levels during puberty may cause acne. In addition, acne is often inherited.

Other causes of acne may include the following:

Hormone level changes during the menstrual cycle in women. Certain drugs (such as corticosteroids, lithium, and
barbiturates). Oil and grease from the scalp, mineral or cooking oil, and certain cosmetics. Bacteria growth inside
pimples. Acne can be aggravated by squeezing the pimples or by scrubbing the skin too hard. Some environmental
conditions such as pollution or humid conditions can also irritate the skin.
 
           
           
 
           
Testosterone & Bacteria
   
 
 
     
Acne may also be caused by the over activity of the sebaceous
glands that secrete oily substances onto the skin.

The sebaceous glands of people with acne are especially sensitive to
normal blood levels of a hormone called testosterone, found naturally
in both men and women.

Testosterone in people prone to acne triggers the sebaceous glands
to produce an excess of serum.

At the same time, the dead skin cells lining the openings of the hair
follicles (the tubes that hold the hair) are not shed properly and clog
up the follicles.
     
 
These two effects combined cause a build-up of oil in the hair follicles. This causes blackheads and whiteheads to form.

For some people, their acne does not progress beyond this stage. However in other people, the build-up of oil in the
hair follicles creates an ideal environment for a bacterium called Propionibacterium acne to grow.

These bacteria normally live harmlessly on your skin but when this ideal environment is created, they grow. They
feed off the serum and produce substances that cause a response from your body's immune system.

This inflames the skin and creates the redness associated with spots.

In more severe 'inflammatory acne', cysts develop beneath the skin's surface. These acne cysts can rupture,
spreading the infection into nearby skin tissue. This can result in scarring.
 
           
           
 
           
Acne Myths
   
 
 
     
Contrary to popular belief acne is not caused by eating fatty food or
chocolate.

Dirt - blackheads get their dark colour through excess skin pigment -
not dirt so washing more does not help, although if you do not wash
your skin at all, bacteria will be able to multiply.

Acne is not contagious, so you cannot catch it.
     
           
 
           
What Can Make My Acne Worse?
   
 
 
     
There are a number of things that can make your acne worse.

Picking and squeezing the spots may cause further inflammation and
scarring stress can make acne worse in some people, although it is
not clear why in women, outbreaks may be affected by the hormonal
changes that occur during the menstrual cycle excessive production
of male hormones such as testosterone from conditions such as
polycystic ovary syndrome may be another cause.

Some contraceptive pills may make acne worse. This is due to the
type of progestogen hormone in some pills whereas some other
types of contraceptive pills can improve acne.

Why Nutritive Soaps?
 
To help your acne, start a daily care routine designed with the
complete health of your skin in mind.
     
     
 
People that suffer with acne all their life would be surprised that they may have created their problem by using skin
care products containing chemicals.

A typical example is the regular soap that you have used since childhood on your body, hands and hair. Remember,
all those cleansers are made with harsh detergents and in time can create allergic, sensitive reactions and persistent
acne condition.

Many people find that with traditional acne treatments their acne and skin becomes worse.

The chemicals used in most acne products can actually irritate your skin, causing redness and inflammation.

Our acne products will help promote a clear complexion.

    I have been using this acne polish for over a year now and my skin has never looked better. You only need a tiny bit and
the beads are perfectly round so I don't get any irritation. It's amazing!

Pat Willis Hamden CT


I love this stuff. It amazingly and makes your skin feel so soft. I have adult acne and notice that when i
use this stuff before i go to bed y skin is much less irritated in the morning. Love it love it love it.

Susan L Rumson NJ


After giving birth and having my skin go nuts from hormonal changes, the spot treatment was the ONLY product that
worked. Blemishes that would not get smaller in months were gone in days. Well worth the price!

Victoria W Excelsior MN


I've tried a lot of treatments and this one really works. I like that I can wear it during the day as well as
at night. Works exceptionally well. Clears pimple faster than other types of treatments I have used and
reduces the redness very quickly.

Testimonials:
 
     
  I had moderate body
acne on my chest, back,
and shoulder area. I
have been using the
anti-bacterial treatment
for about 2 weeks now
and I can see that my
acne is disappearing. I
also use it on my face to
prevent zits from
happening. The bottome
line, I would recommend
this acne treatment for
body/face acne!

Bonnie V Largo FL


The polish helps even the
big nasty pimples in a few
days, with the smaller ones
go away in hours. It really
does help to minimize the
appearance of most acne
after I apply it, too. Overall
I would say it is a great
produce for anyone who,
like me, considers even
minor acne to be a major
annoyance!

Terry C Brookings SD


The acne polish is truly
an alternative to
everyting else on the
market. The gel goes on
really smooth and leaves
a nice smooth texture
that does not feel dry at
all, yet it completely
eliminates oiliness on the
skin. Very expensive but
worth the price.
