Acne Solutions – Do You Need One?

Written by Peter Crump

Acne solutions occupyrepparttar minds of our teenagers. With acne beingrepparttar 146215 most common skin complaint inrepparttar 146216 world, and teenagers beingrepparttar 146217 most body conscious people in our society, acne solutions are keenly sought by our young.

Howeverrepparttar 146218 search for “acne solutions” or “acne cures” rests onrepparttar 146219 assumption that acne can be cured, muchrepparttar 146220 same as it is assumed that many other medical problems ofrepparttar 146221 modern age can be cured. The reality however, is different. Real acne solutions are just that, solutions, not cures.

It is a symptom of our fast fix society that if we have a problem we want an immediate fix. If we can’t fix it ourselves we assume that technology will come torepparttar 146222 rescue and provide a simple, painless low cost fix in a bottle.

Acne, unfortunately, isn’t so easy.

Acne affects, according to some, up to 95% if teenagers at some time in their teen or early adult years. It can be serious and debilitating, mild and easy to control, or usually somewhere in between. The market for acne cures is huge, billions of dollars.

And of course there are a myriad of acne remedies out there all claiming to berepparttar 146223 one and only. The magic bullet of acne cures. The one stop fix for every teenagers troubling acne.

Millions are spent in advertising these so called acne cures or acne remedies. Wild claims are made about their effectiveness. Guarantees are offered that they will work.

Howeverrepparttar 146224 reality of acne is that scientists still do not fully understand what causes it. The causes of acne are thought to be hormonal, or more specifically a hormonal imbalance, butrepparttar 146225 mechanism isn’t fully proven.

So despiterepparttar 146226 fact thatrepparttar 146227 market for acne remedies is huge, it is still true that acne cannot be cured. Acne is a condition caused by some mix of as yet unknown factors at work inrepparttar 146228 body, and will only stop whenrepparttar 146229 body decides it’s time for it to stop. Until then it will, or can, continue and this process is independent of attempts to cure it.
