Still they say there is no cure for acne.. hmm! This feature discusses the main skin issues and what the real causes of skin conditions like acne are. This is yet another example of misinformation on the internet. A lot of the information on the internet is of no use, as its based on little to no knowledge or real understanding of what the actual causes of skin conditions are. There is a cure for acne, but not one where doctors and pharmaceutical companies or dermatologists can still profit massively from.
Acne affects 85 percent of Australians at some time during their life — now that’s a lot of zits! Put simply, acne is caused by a blockage to the opening of the oil glands in the skin. The oil glands are called sebaceous glands, and they produce an oily sheen called sebum (stay with us), which is responsible for keeping skin healthy.
Yes, oil is good! Blockages in the sebaceous glands are common in teens, but also in adults if their hormones are seeking some balance. In short: there is no known cure for acne but it is treatable — both orally with antibiotics and topically — with creams, lotions and gel including benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
It needs to made very clear, acne can be cured, acne is not caused by the sebaceous glands, acne and any other skin complaints are caused by toxin build-up, acidic body, hormonal imbalances and genetic tendencies, which can cause the sebaceous glands to produce increased levels of sebum oil which can clog the pores of the skin. There is an known cure for acne, but not so surprisingly, is not told by the pharmaceutical companies as they want to protect their own interests and continue to rake in the billions it makes from selling symptom treating acne drugs and products.
