What is acne and how can I deal with it?

In Articles by PurO3

Acne can affect both adults and teenagers. The four main causes for acne are:

  • Clogged pores
  • Dead skin cells
  • Bacteria
  • Oil production

Acne occurs where you have the most sebaceous glands (oil glands), which are connected to the hair follicle. These glands produce sebum, an oil, that is used to lubricate your hair and skin. At times, there can be a buildup of excess sebum and dead skin cells around the hair follicle, clogging the pore. This creates the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive, forming a pimple.

A potential way to remedy this is by using ozonated oil. This surprises most because you would assume that treating excess oil with oil would clog the pores more, but it actually does the opposite in this case. This was proved in a study that used ozonated olive oil to treat acne. It was concluded that it did, in fact, reduce the bacteria of the acne, did not clog pores (also termed non-comedogenic), and did not irritate skin.

Another great ozonated oil you can use to help remedy an acne breakout is jojoba oil. Jojoba oil by itself is really similar to the sebum naturally produced by the skin. Because of this similarity, it is theorized that jojoba oil can balance the oil production of the skin by tricking it into thinking that it has already produced enough oil. Not only does it balance the skin, it is also moisturizes it and is considered non-comedogenic. Combine the jojoba oil with ozone and you have the perfect combination for balancing the skin, preventing more acne caused by oil production, and eliminating bacteria caused by acne.

If you’re in need of an acne treatment, ozonated olive oil is perfect for healing the infected area while leaving the skin moisturized. If you’re looking more to balance your skin and prevent an acne outbreak, ozonated jojoba oil has got you covered. Both of these oils combined together make the perfect acne skin care kit!
