    Tempo di lettura: 3 minuti

    What is it

    At first, acne manifests itself through the development of open and closed comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and pimples, then papulas and inflamed pustules may also appear, and finally, in more severe cases, they can evolve into nodules or cysts. Acne is widespread and typically affects young people, although it occurs among adults as well.

    The possible causes

    Acne can be caused by a Propionibacterium acnes infection, a bacterium that lives on the skin of the human surface and can trigger inflammation in particular types of skin. Hormonal changes, for example during puberty and after pregnancy, are thought to be another trigger of acne, because they cause the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum than the skin needs, so it appears more oily and shiny, the pores dilate, clog and so black dots, white dots and pimples tends to appear.
    Certain medications are also known to stimulate acne. It is also believed that there is a genetic predisposition to this condition.

    On the other hand, stress is an aggravating factor of acne, as well as air pollution and an unbalanced diet that consists of, for example, mainly refined sugars or carbohydrates. 

    An additional possible cause for the appearance of comedones could be oxidative stress caused by using cosmetics unsuitable for your skin, by a lowering in immune defenses, the use of an unsuitable sunscreen or not using one at all.

    How to take care of it through specific treatments

    Acne can produce unaesthetic and permanent scars and cause emotional stress, so it is necessary to take care of it as soon as it first appears. During teenage years acne leads to isolation, while in adults it can become a source of embarrassment. In both cases, it reduces self-esteem and can sometimes compromise social and romantic relationships.

    First of all, it is important to use a non-aggressive detergent that acts in depth, without irritating the skin. Oleocut Normalizing Cleanser is ideal for daily cleansing of oily, impure and acneic skin thanks to a formulation composed of thermal water concentrate and vitamin B3 that in synergy have an anti-reddening, calming and sebum-regulating action.

    In the same face line, Oleocut Purifying Gel is a gel suitable for daily care that helps the elimination of pimples, comedones and blackheads, making the skin smoother and brighter and giving an immediate feeling of freshness.

    Oleocut 3 Active is a gel cream that completes the treatment thanks to its intensive localized action: in fact, it should be applied directly on the pimple before going to sleep. This is an interesting option that can help resist the urge to constantly touch your face and squeeze pimples, which are both actions to avoid, since they can make the situation worse and cause scars.

    Although sun exposure is thought to be beneficial for acne skin, it is important to remember to apply a suitable sunscreen, as after prolonged exposure to the sun during summer, acne may worsen as autumn arrives. The apparent improvement of the acne skin that occurs after exposure to the sun is mainly due to the tan, which, making the complexion more uniform, makes the acne imperfections less noticeable. Therefore, it is necessary to use specific sunscreen products for the acne-prone face characterized by a light texture and containing the moisturizing and calming active ingredients. In case of severe acne, you can use our CC Cream Immuno Elios CC Cream for a concealing effect, to even the complexion of face and hide all imperfections.
