Acupuncture for acne and acne scars

Acne is a nightmare for everyone and unluckily, it doesn’t just affect teenagers. Even though teenagers are more likely to get acne, adults are concerned too. Adult acne can appear when you are in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s or even 50’s! So while you may have escaped with the occasional pimple as a teenager, adult acne can be frustrating and problematic when you least need it.

There are many reasons why you can get acne. Although it is often hormonal in origin, other factors can trigger or irritate acne such as: stress levels, your diet, certain medications and lifestyle choices. In order to treat it, there are many ways: mostly medications (pills, creams…), specific diet, but often it is difficult to overcome them.

5 Best oils for acne scars: Vanquish acne scars forever

While for some extremely lucky people acne is a temporary problem, acne scars can be a real, permanent pain in the butt (or on the face, for that matter). Like the acne itself isn’t bad enough – they always seem to pop up when least expected, cause unnecessary discomfort and manage to spoil your mood faster than the speed of sound – some also leave a scar when they are gone, just in case you forget.

On the plus side, you’re not alone. According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases, around 80% of all people between ages 11 and 30 get acne outbreaks at some point in their lives.

Like it or not, scarring is a natural part of the skin’s healing process after being damaged by a wound. Unfortunately, acne counts as a wound as well. While most superficial wounds heal without leaving any trace, the inflammation caused by acne damages your skin’s dermis – the deeper, thicker layer of the skin – developing scars after the healing process is over.

Don’t get discouraged just yet though. Acne scars can be treated effectively. Below we will take a detailed look at what causes them, how you can prevent them and what are the best oils for acne scars.
