Acne

Acne is a frustrating and troublesome skin concern affecting both adults and teenagers. Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder characterised by pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. For post-teen women, acne can also be a sign of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. With so many vitamins, supplements, herbal remedies & acne creams on the market to treat acne, we pick out some of the best treatment remedies for acne including zinc for acne and acne skin-care.

The good news is that acne can be treated and prevented but before you do that it is advisable to understand which type of acne you suffer from. There are three basic types of womens acne as outlined below:

Comedonal acne – this type of acne occurs as a result of blocked pores. It looks like tiny bumps on the skin particularly around the T-zone. 

Cystic acne – this is usually a scarring type of acne with deep seated inflammation. Cystic acne is the most severe type of acne and you need to address this with an inside-outside approach because it can have a social and emotional impact.
 
Hormonal acne – usually occurs in women between the ages of 20 and 30. The usual cause for this type of acne is a drop in oestrogen levels either cyclically during a period or on an ongoing basis since oestrogen levels drop past the age of 30.
