The Evolution of Acne Treatment

As far back as most of us can remember, the original acne treatment was to get skin as clean as possible. Affected teens were encouraged to wash their faces several times each day to get rid of surface oil, and the dirt that caused whiteheads and blackheads. Over time, the shift to diet as the cause in acne led to cutting out greasy fried foods, chocolate, and other foods from their diet. Alcohol was often used to get skin clean at the pore level, often over-drying it and causing further irritation, instead of helping with the problem. Today, there are many products on the market that include salicylic acid and/or benzoyl peroxide for acne, products which remove dead skin cells that block pores, and which kill the bacteria that cause inflammation.
Why Using Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide for Acne Is Not Enough
Although these modern-day ingredients are effective at what they do, the buildup of oil and resulting clogged pores and inflammation are the end result of the problem. They are more like the symptoms, and not the illness itself. Acne results from an over-stimulation of the oil glands in the skin that is caused by a hormone called DHT. The difference in Clearogen is that it contains ingredients that prevent DHT from being made, so that oil production in the skin is reduced. Without the excess oil, dead skin cells don’t stick inside the pores and facilitate the growth of bacteria.
