Based on new research, the dermatologist community is re-thinking what causes acne and how to treat it – Okay so they are a little slow as we already had this knowledge, which is why we have been producing our clinically proven, acne fighting skin product help: clear skin for years… but it is fantastic that dermatologists are coming round to our way of thinking.
What does the new research say?
Over the past year, dermatologists have discovered that all acne is inflammatory and that patients with acne are under increased skin and systemic oxidative stress from this inflammation.
The technical stuff…
Recent studies showed that oxidative stress (to the lipids in the sebum) cause inflammation in the skin and bodies – which, in turn, causes acne. In fact, these studies suggest that inflammation might actually precede all of the other steps in what causes acne.
Why oxidative stress leads to acne: The normal antioxidant defense system becomes overwhelmed in acne patients from this oxidative stress. Acne patients appear to have lower amounts of antioxidant enzymes circulating in their bloodstream and skin. Antioxidants are consumed at a faster pace, both in the skin and systemically (as seen in lab blood tests).
The secret? Antioxidants – which can be used to treat acne both orally and topically. And antioxidants are all natural, healthy and effective, and a safe method of treatment for acne sufferers of all ages.
help: clear skin contains Praventin which has antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, all of which are key in the fight against acne (acne vulgaris).
help: clear skin has been clinically proven to help achieve a smoother more radiant complexion by reducing the bacteria associated with skin blemishes (spots & acne), helping to soothe and heal skin with results seen in as little as 4-6 weeks of daily use.
