What is acne? Why is it such a nuisance?

Acne is a type of skin infection. It plays havoc with skin functions, and it’s often very persistent. Untreated, it can be a serious health issue in some cases. It can also cause major scarring and absolute misery for sufferers. We’re going to do a general overview of what acne is and how it operates.

Acne basics

Acne is a quite common skin condition. It’s usually caused by a mild bacterial infection by the usual culprit bacterium Acne vulgaris. There are two basic forms of acne infection, inflammatory and non-inflammatory.

Fake Acne Review Websites – Don’t be Fooled!

At some point or another, most of us have looked for the “best acne treatments” available, and we all hope there is an easy fix. That makes us targets. We are all so willing to believe that there is one product that is better than the others and works for everyone. What you may have noticed, though, is that there are far too many websites claiming to list the top acne products available. Looking at these sites in great depth, I’ve also discovered that many of these sites offer fake reviews with the websites making profit from the products included in their list.

I have always been a strong supporter of good health as the best treatment for acne but that doesn’t mean others won’t work for some people and it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try them for yourself. It’s important to clarify that not all “Top Treatment” review websites are scammers – some offer legitimate reviews and great information, even if they do make some money if the products are sold. With that in mind, I’ve prepared a quick guide to help you identify the fake review websites and to find a product that might actually work for you.

How To Treat Acne Scars

Acne scars will generally reflect the severity of your acne. More severe acne will mean more severe scars. Acne can often disappear only to leave a discoloured or raised mark where it once was, or even small craters in severe cases. This redness often fades in a matter of months or in a year but in some cases these acne scars can be permanent. Luckily, you can take steps to reduce this scarring or even make it disappear.

The Benefits Of Sunscreen

You will probably know that wearing sunscreen protects your skin from sun damage, but it does more than that.
