And while we love to learn about these things, we also know that there is still so much to learn. Thankfully, what we do know can help people who struggle with acne. Knowledge is power, and understanding how our skin functions (and is impacted by our health) can help us identify the best treatments that can help you fight acne. Keep reading to learn more about acne and how we can help you fight it.

First, you need to understand that there is no one straight cause of acne. When we say that everyone’s acne is different, we mean it. Some acne is caused by an imbalance of hormones, while others forms of acne can be caused by bacteria introduced from your hands or even fungal infections. Because there are so many causes to this annoying skin condition, there are also many treatments that may help you win your fight with acne. What works for your best friend or your favorite YouTubers may not be as effective for you, so keep in mind that a little trial and error may be necessary to identify the best treatment for your skin. If you’re willing to put in the time and effort, often you can find and fix the cause of your acne.

Who can be treated for acne?

Acne seems to be quite common among teenagers living in the western world, and that acne can impact your self confidence just when you’re figuring out who you are in the world. Some people may not be bothered by a little pimple, while others will find their self esteem impacted by lots of spots covering their face. We think that if you’re bothered by acne, no matter how old you are, and no matter how much you have, it’s worth spending some time to identify the cause.
