Acne with essential oils
What is acne
Acne is very common in teenagers though it can stay with you to your thirties and sometimes beyond, especially if you happen to be a woman. The pimples can be inflamed or not. A pimple is called also a comedo and it can have a black or white head, black means the comedo is open to the air and was oxygenated and the white comedo is closed. The comedo can be inflamed.
It’s not clear why some people get more acne than others, There is definitely a hormonal influence though. Some women get more acne before they get their period and certain contraceptive pills are used as a treatment for acne in women. Acne can be connected to consumption of dairy and simple carbs, this was not prove scientifically but everyone can try to cut dairy and sugar for a week and see if it helps.
Complications of acne
Severe acne can leave scars and skin spots that are not easy to get rid of. In the teenage years acne can lead to depression and loneliness. It’s not only a cosmetic problem in most cases so its important to assess this aspect too.
