The truth is most of acne “treatments” mentioned do not really work. Some of them can worsen the problem, such as by causing the pimples to pop. To truly solve this persistent skin problem, a better understanding of the skin and it’s structure is essential. A good understanding of how acne develops is also very important.
The skin is the single largest organ in the body. It covers the entire body from head to foot. The structure is basically the same, but varies on some points depending on where it is located. For example, no matter where in the body, she skin is composed of 3 layers: the epidermis, dermis and hypodermics. However, the thickness and distribution of structures within these layers vary across the body.
Common misconceptions hinder effective acne prevention and treatment. It is important to understand the real reasons why acne develops in order to effectively treat and prevent it from recurring.
