Botox: An Old Look in a New World

Acne Vulgaris or commonly known as acne is a mixed eruption of skin lesions that can be inflammatory and non-inflammatory. Acne Vulgaris can also be termed as pimples, spots, and acne. Nearly everyone can suffer from acne vulgaris at any age but it mostly affects adolescents.

Acne mostly occurs on the face but it can appear in the neck, back, and chest. Our Dermatologist, Dr. Neha, is recommended as the best doctor for acne treatment in Gurgaon. Acne can occur due to many reasons including excess sebum production, Follicular plugging with sebum and keratinocytes, the release of multiple inflammatory mediators, etc.

Various factors can aggravate these reasons like changes in hormones, menstrual flare, genetics, tobacco, stress, and drugs.

How can one prevent acne?
  • Keep your face clean: It is important to keep your face clean whether or not you have active acne or not. Wash your face twice a day to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface. Make sure to use mild cleansers as using a harsh soap can irritate the skin more. Also, avoid rubbing the face harshly with a washcloth or loofah, just wash your face with your hands or soft cloth.
  • Use a Moisturizer: Moisturizers help the skin to stay hydrated. If your skin remains dry, the skin produces sebum to counterbalance and excess sebum production causes pimples to erupt. Choose a moisturizer with fewer ingredients and fragrance-free moisturizers.
  • Stay Hydrated: Keeping your skin well-hydrated is very important for the skin. If the skin is dehydrated, the skin signals to produce more sebum. Also, dehydration gives your skin a dull appearance and promotes inflammation.
    To keep your body well-hydrated, drink at least 8 glasses of water each day.
  • Consume the right kind of food: Greasy and junk food can trigger acne. Add more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to your diet. Dairy and foods processed in high sugar may also trigger acne so one should avoid these.
  • Limit Sun Exposure: Frequent Sun Exposure can dry out the skin and dehydrate the skin over time which causes the skin to produce more sebum. Also do not wear sunscreen to protect your skin. However, choose a matte-finish sunscreen or an oil-free sunscreen.
  • Do not touch your face often: Touching your face can transfer bacteria and clog impurities into your skin. Wash your hands regularly and make sure that the hands are clean, this minimizes the risk of transferring bacteria and dust.
