Skin Care in Acne vulgaris - Cause of Acne

Dr Subramanyam
Many factors are responsible for producing acne.

These can be categorized as follows:

1. External Factors: These mainly include pollution, direct exposure to sun over longer duration etc.
2. Internal Factors: include heredity, hormonal imbalances, stress, constipation etc.


Prevention is better than cure.

Acne, particularly the one, caused by internal factors as above can be easily prevented. The following habits can be helpful:1. Drink 8~10 glasses of water daily2. Eat plenty of fruits and leafy vegetables Wash your face 2~3 times a day, but not more than that. Too much washing will aggravate the situation as excessive washing causes the body to produce more oil which makes the acne worse3. To keep the acne under control, one needs to control both external as well as internal factors. External remedies, as mentioned below, along with internal nutritious diet lead to healthy skin.
