The Vitamin for Acne

In general the BEST way to get vitamins to your skin cells is to eat the vitamins and let your blood do it. I.e. this is much better than laying it ON your skin. Your blood system is how your body is set up to transfer vitamins and nutrients to your cells. You also need to drink a lot of water to help your blood and cells work well, bringing in nutrients and removing the wastes. Your skin is set up to prevent foreign objects from getting in to your body. So the whole reason your skin exists is to prevent st...

The Drug for Acne

There are many drugs on the market that are promoted to help with acne. Remember that the key problem that starts acne is an overactive oil gland that gets blocked up. So things that help with acne either slow down oil production, help to clear off the 'gunk' that blocks up the oil gland, or helps to minimize the infection that develops within the blocked pore. Birth Control Pill I of course never recommend going on birth control just to fend off acne! However, if you are going on the pill anyway, one great...

The cleaning solutions for curing your acne

The most important thing you can do while handling your acne situation is to keep your skin clean. The whole problem with acne is that your oil pores are getting jammed up and infected. If you can keep the skin healthy and unjammed, the acne won't happen. The problem is that acne sort of self-perpetuates. That is, one bubble forms and fills with pus. When it opens, that pus gets into nearby pores and things get worse and worse. That's why it's so critical that you take care, every single day, to keep your f...

The Cyst Pimples

Acne is when a pore of the skin gets filled with something, and the body swells up around it. A cyst is when that "something" is white pus, so that the acne pimple looks like a bubble with a white central core. Cysts are a very normal type of acne. The should not be "popped" or touched in any way, because the act of opening up the bubble could cause infection and make things far worse - even leaving a scar. Follow the other suggestions on this site in order to remove the Cysts and to prevent them from retur...

The should not be "popped" or touched in any way, because the act of opening up the bubble could cause infection and make things far worse - even leaving a scar.

Drugs causing Acne

Surely we know how various items can cause skin reactions. We all know people who break out when stung by bees, or people who get rashes when they eat certain foods. It's no surprise that there are some drugs that cause our oil glands to get a little exuberant, and to cause pimples. It's important to remember that these drugs are often critical for your health. If acne is a side effect you're getting from a prescribed drug, we can certainly find ways to help minimize that. Never try to "fix" your acne by st...

Fabric, Clothing and Acne

You might think it strange that fabric or clothing could cause acne - but this about it in this way. Say you have a helmet that you wear for 12 hours straight on a bike trip, and that there's a chin strap on it. Say that chin strap covers up 10 pores on your face. All of those pores are making oil - but the oil can't get out. It is stuck in the pore. It dries up there, gets crusty, and forms a seal. Now when more oil is made, it is stuck and makes a bubble. The bubble of oil gets infected, and now you have ...

Oily Food, Greasy Food and Acne

It's funny how researchers can do specialized studies to "prove" something - when really in real world terms they have not proved anything at all. Some researches feel they have proven that greasy food never causes acne. Here's the issue. I have an acne problem, and I'm in my 30s, so I'm not a teenager. I've had many years to experiment with various situations and to see how my skin reacts. We also tend to eat a fair number of McDonalds meals in our car :) Now, let's say we drive up to a McDonalds and place...

The Dirty Skin and Acne

It's funny how researchers can do specialized studies to "prove" something - when really in real world terms they have not proved anything at all. Some researches feel they have proven that dirt never causes acne - that a dirty face has nothing to do with acne. Here's the issue. If you take 10 teenagers and rub dirt on all of their faces, then it's not like all 10 of them will instantly get acne in the exact same way. Say that one of the teenagers has oil glands that never make oil. The oil won't exist to g...

The Pollution of Acne

The Pollution of AcneWhen you think of pollution, you tend to think of giant black smokestacks belching out giant clouds of black smoke. However, in our modern world, pollution comes in many forms. Try buying an air filter for your bedroom sometime, and run it for a few weeks. Take a look at the filter, and see all of the garbage it's pulled out of your air. All sorts of things get into our air - car exhaust, pesticides from gardens and lawns, pollutants from numerous other activities. They float around in the air, and eventual...

What causes Acnes and Pimples ?

Be first to read all about What Acne Is to understand how it involves clogged pores. Once you understand that the pores are getting clogged up, it's time to learn just WHY this whole thing happens to some people and not to others. First, we all know that acne tends to strike teenagers. Why is this? It has to do with hormones. Hormones are released into the body starting around the teen years, to help a "child" body mature into an "adult" body. Hormones are the things that make a female grow breasts, a man's...

To understand acne and pimples

To understand acne and pimples, you have to understand skin. Below I've done a rather crude (grin) drawing of a cross section of skin. To the left is an oil gland and to the right is a hair follicle. Your skin has an incredibly important function. It keeps your entire body safe from infection. It keeps out the virusses and bacteria. It keeps in your vitals. It keeps you warm, it keeps you cool. One of the key ways in which your skin keeps you warm and cool is via its pore. Go to your mirror sometimes and st...

The quality of DVD-Video

DVD has the capability to produce near-studio-quality video and better-than-CD-quality audio. DVD is vastly superior to consumer videotape and generally better than laserdisc (see 2.7.). However, quality depends on many production factors. As compression experience and technology improves we see increasing quality, but as production costs decrease and DVD authoring software becomes widely available we also see more shoddily produced discs. A few low-budget DVDs even use MPEG-1 encoding (which is no better t...

DVD stands for…

All of the following have been proposed as the words behind the letters DVD. Delayed, very delayed (referring to the many late releases of DVD formats) Diversified, very diversified (referring to the proliferation of recordable formats and other spinoffs) Digital venereal disease (referring to piracy and copying of DVDs) Dead, very dead (from naysayers who predicted DVD would never take off) Digital video disc (the original meaning proposed by some of DVD's creators) Digital versatile disc (a meaning later ...

What is DVD?

DVD is movies on a shiny disc, and much more. It's an optical disc storage technology for video, audio, and computer data. DVD is essentially a bigger, faster CD that can hold high-quality digital video, better-than-CD audio, pictures, and any other sort of digital information. DVD encompasses home entertainment, computers, and business information with a single digital format. It replaced laserdisc, videotape, many video game cartridge formats, and many CD-ROM applications. DVD has widespread support from ...

Why should I register my work if copyright protection is automatic?

Registration is recommended for a number of reasons. Many choose to register their works because they wish to have the facts of their copyright on the public record and have a certificate of registration. Registered works may be eligible for statutory damages and attorney's fees in successful litigation. Finally, if registration occurs within 5 years of publication, it is considered prima facie evidence in a court of law.
