Acne is often a constant struggle. You want your skin to be beautiful, but your skin thinks otherwise. Luckily, most acne is easy to diagnose with photos and treat with medications and routine online check-ins with your doctor. Many dermatologists offer treatments in their office, but this is an expensive and inconvenient route to take.
What causes acne?
Your skin produces oil in your pores and the oil normally escapes through your hair follicles. But when those hair follicles become blocked due to excess oil and dead skin, the oil can’t escape, setting up an opportunity for an infection to take hold. Acne can appear pretty much anywhere on your body from your face to your back.
But what really causes it?
While there are many causes, most acne stems from the products you use and the way you take care of your skin. The hair and skin products you use can often clog pores. And so can routinely touching your face. Any sort of irritation to your skin, from making out with men with scratchy beards or picking at pimples or scrubbing your skin too hard or using a harsh laundry detergent, can make acne worse. Stress and smoking can also contribute to acne.
Acne is often embarrassing.
And that’s why we think it’s so important to help you easily treat it. Clear skin builds confidence no matter how old you are. So, let’s get started.
What’s the easiest way to treat acne?
You could make an appointment with a regular doctor or dermatologist (but this involves annoying office visits that will set you back ~$200-$250 with the co-pay + the bills that show up a few weeks later). But, by far, the fastest, best way to treat your acenter is to use Sherpaa.
