ACNE:

Acne is a common skin condition that affects myself and most people at some point their lives. In this weeks video I've first given a short explanation of why we get acne followed by tips on skincare, treatment and what can make acne worse.


Leave a comment below with how you get on and share any of your own useful tips which other may found helpful too! The most important thing to remember is that acne is treatable and can be improved. So if you have any friends or family who would benefit from this video then feel free to spread the word. Thank you.


TYPE OF ACNE SPOTS:

There are six main types of spot caused by acne,


• Blackheads – small black bumps that develop on the skin; they're not filled with dirt, but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces pigmentation.

• Whiteheads – have a similar appearance to blackheads, but may be firmer and won't empty when squeezed.

• Papules – small red bumps that may feel tender or sore.

• Pustules – similar to papules, but have a white tip in the centre, caused by a build-up of pus.

• Nodules – large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painful.

• Cysts – the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they're large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarring


WHAT CAN I DO IF I HAVE ACNE:

These self-help techniques may be useful:


• Don't wash affected areas of skin more than twice a day. Frequent washing can irritate the skin and make symptoms worse.

• Wash the affected area with a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water. Very hot or cold water can make acne worse.

• Don't try to "clean out" blackheads or squeeze spots. This can make them worse and cause permanent scarring.

• Completely remove make-up before going to bed.

• If dry skin is a problem, use a fragrance-free, water-based emollient.

• Change your pillow case and face towel daily with a fresh laundered one. When not washed frequently, pillowcases and towels can contribute to acne breakouts because of the accumulation of bacteria, dirt, and oils. These come from the environment and from our own skin and hair from daily use. This small tip helped me a lot with my acne.


Although acne can't be cured, it can be controlled with treatment that are available at pharmacies.


HIGH GLYCEMIC FOODS:

As explained in the video here are a few examples of foods which have a high glycemic index,

• White and whole wheat bread

• White rice

• Breakfast cereals and cereal bars

• Cakes, cookies, and sweet treats

• Potatoes and fries

• Chips and rice crackers

• Sweetened dairy products such as fruit yogurts


WHEN TO SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE:

Even mild cases of acne can cause distress. If your acne is making you feel very unhappy or you can't control your spots with over-the-counter medication, see your GP.


Also see your GP if you develop nodules or cysts, as they need to be treated properly to avoid scarring. Try to resist the temptation to pick or squeeze the spots, as this can lead to permanent scarring.


Treatments can take up to three months to work, so don't expect results overnight.
