Say goodbye to acne with the Offects TE-Pads Acne Pore Treatment

The Offects TE-Pads Acne Pore Treatment
by ZO Skin Health.
As we Spring into Summer for the month of June, we celebrate acne awareness month. Acne is quite possibly the most common problematic skin issue, effecting over three million people alone every year in the United States. Although acne finds a way to reach teenagers and young adults, anyone at any age can be affected. And whether you have oily, dry, and even combination skin, you can still find yourself getting exposed to this conventional cutaneous condition.

So, what is acne? It's simple, acne is when mammalian skin organs become clogged with both oil and dead skin cells. Most of the time these mammalian skin organs are hair follicles. When these particular areas of the skin are clogged they develop blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples which result in irritation and even scarring. What causes acne? With an array of causes such as DNA damage, oxidative stress and even environmental stressors, according to the NCBI, almost 70% is caused by genetics.

The question remains; however, is there a cure for acne? Although there is not one stand-alone cure, it is always possible that acne can be cured or at least treated effectively. In fact, acne can be managed with the right regimen. A healthy diet is always key along with daily activity. Whether it is going to the gym, engaging in strength training and calisthenics or riding your bike, engaging in cross training and cardio. It is also important to keep yourself happy and motivated, as stress is another cause for acne. And keep yourself hydrated, drinking water and coconut water instead of reaching for those sugar infused sodas that taste good, but do nothing for your health.

Another way you can manage acne is by incorporating the ZO Skin Health's Offects TE-Pads Acne Pore Treatment into your daily skin regimen. As you may or may not be aware, this daily treatment helps target excess oiliness and as a result, helps decrease breakouts on the skin. This ZO Skin Health addition also features textured pads which create a dual action exfoliation. This exfoliation works to remove dead skin cells and prevent clogged pores from forming, the kind of clogged pores that cause acne.

As this product is free of parabens and gluten, it works immensely to calm and soothe irritated skin, allowing your skin to heal.

Sunlights effect on Acne

As someone who has suffered from extreme acne during the teenage years of her life, I can tell you that sunlight was more of a friend, than an enemy. Sunlight has a positive effect on acne, as well as, acne scarring and I will you why.

I would break out constantly during my teenage years due to stress and hormonal changes in my life. In fact, I was going through a lot changes, that highly contributed to acne. This excluded genetics, of course which also play an immense role on breakouts. When exposed to sunlight, I've noticed that my acne would go away and the scars would fade daily. Of course, I did other things, but in my mind, I didn't understand why the sun was actually helpful and beneficial towards my skin.

One evening, I decided to log online a few years ago and research "Is the sun good for acne?" and found out that when we are exposed to the sun, we are exposed to vitamin D. Vitamin D is very important, as it prevents a variety of illnesses and cancers. Our skin is the largest organ we have. What I found out recently is, vitamin D from UV-B Rays some how enters your body and some how transforms into your entire body, effecting all of your organs including our skin, our largest organ. This includes everything from your bones to your blood to your liver to even your hormones.

Then it hit me. Hormones are a big contribution to acne. Stress and environmental factors also contributors to acne too. Then it hit me, sunlight is important to treating acne the way a plant uses photosynthesis because it releases a vitamin that triumphs all organs and benefits them, including hormones, stress and any problems caused from the environment.

I think that is why some individuals believe the sun is responsible for acne when it fact it is more helpful than hurtful.
