You have probably tried a number of over-the-counter products without success and possibly an antibiotic. Most antibiotics work by killing propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) but approximately 30%-45% of today’s P. acnes strains are resistant to one or more of the more common antibiotics, making them useless.
Over-the-counter products focus on the symptoms of acne rather than the biochemical causes of acne. While this may be okay for light acne, it won’t prevent light acne from progressing into the moderate to severe stages.
Biochemically Speaking, Acne Is Easy to Understand: Testosterone (an androgen hormone) targets the skin and the sebaceous glands where sebum is produced. It combines with the enzyme 5alpha-reductase to produce dihydrotestosterone, which stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce increased volumes of sebum. Sebum is expelled out into the follicular tube.
Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) and other bacteria on the skin and within the follicles produce bacterial lipases (enzymes) that move into the follicle opening and convert sebum into free fatty acids, which irritate the follicle lining. This irritation causes excessive production of cells and cellular debris, which block the follicle and trap P. acnes inside. The P. acnes inside the blocked follicle breed and produce acne infections. Infections grow and irritate and inflame the skin and macrophage cells produce histamines that cause the skin to become red, puffy and sensitive or even itchy. This causes more follicle blockage and promotes more acne infections.
Most acne products attempt to kill P. acnes with ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, and keep the follicles open with ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid and glycolic acid. They do not address the other issues that cause acne. Benzoyl peroxide can cause premature skin aging, slow healing and is associated with increased skin cancer risks. In 1995 the FDA issued warnings regarding the use of benzoyl peroxide and changed its status from safe to uncertain.
BIOCUTIS® skin products for Acne kill P. acnes and a variety of other undesirable bacteria that produce lipases. The products also keep follicles open and block 5alpha-reductase and thereby reduce dihydrotestosterone. This reduces sebum production.
The products very significantly reduce bacterial lipases by removing a variety of undesirable bacteria, and thereby reduce the production of free fatty acids that promote follicle blockage. The product blocks the production of histamines to prevent additional histamine-induced acne. BIOCUTIS® skin care products address all aspects of the biochemical progression that cause acne and achieve control or a complete acne cure in over 80% of cases.
Linoleic acid is a normal component of sebum. It is an “essential fatty acid” required by the body and you may be more familiar with this bio-chemical as omega oil, fish oil, safflower oil (as contained in Green Tea Poultice) or a number of other terms.
Essential fatty acids are very powerful anti-inflammatory agents and sebum made with linoleic acid is calming to the skin. Modern foods have avoided these essential oils in favor of “designer” lipids like trans-fatty acids and research has found links suggesting trans-fats may break down the body’s supply of essential fatty acids. When linoleic acid is not available in the skin, the sebaceous gland produces sebum with oleic acid and this form of sebum is irritating to the skin and promotes acne. It has been suggested that oleic acid sebum is drier, firmer and more prone to cause blackheads, whiteheads and promote follicular plugs that lead to acne infections.
People with very dry skin and continual follicle blockage (blackheads, whiteheads and/or acne) may benefit from increasing their consumption of foods rich in linoleic acid/omega oils or taking supplements such as flax seed oil. Do NOT take flax seed supplements if pregnant or nursing.
Mild and moderate acne can also be addressed with a more holistic approach, and if BIOSKINCARE does not work for you in a few days (7-10 days), instead of endlessly searching for a product that just might work for you, the following procedure will benefit your skin condition.
- Go to a sauna and get into it for 15 minutes (not more not less), then shower. Then back to the sauna for another 15 minutes.. then shower. This helps your body to get rid of toxins within your skin. You can do this once or twice a month if you do not get addicted to such pleasures… and the clear results for your skin… specially if you also follow the next step
- Shift your diet, and stick strictly to it for two weeks. Eat loads of fresh fruits and fresh salads including tomato, avocado and virgin olive oil, plus fresh Brazil nuts (shelled) and 50 grams each day of high quality bio-available proteins in the form of raw fish such as sashimi (fresh fish the Japanese way without the rice) or raw tuna fish (fresh not refrigerated or canned).
- Apply one of the three BIOCUTIS products for acne treatment twice a day to speed the process of getting rid of acne bacteria within your skin follicles, halt inflammation and repair acne scarring.
What can you do about acne?
Gently wash your face twice a day with a mild soap and pat dry.
Avoid direct exposure to sun. If you are in outdoor sports, use non-irritating sun screen.
The ladies should choose water-base non-comedogenic cosmetics and avoid birth- control pills that contain androgenic progestogens such as norethisterone, norgestrol, norgestrienone, lynestrenol and medroxy progesterone acetate. Check with your doctor if the pill seems to be making acne worse…
Avoid touching or squeezing the pimples with your hands.
