Chronic & Hereditary Acne:
This acne is completely different than hormonal acne, which is acne caused by stress or environmental factors, etc. Chronic and hereditary acne can be identified by taking a look at your family first, mom & dad, sister & brother. Second by taking a look at your own acne experience.
Hereditary acne will not come and go during puberty, pregnancy, times of stress, or a lapse in a good skin care routine. Hereditary acne will sometimes start before puberty and will just stay and stay and stay and stay.
It will not be confined to one area of your face only, it may be deep and more cystic acne. Most people will try all of the acne products that strip their face of sebum (oil) which will do nothing but make it worse. This acne is not about oil production or dirt and debris. Chronic & Hereditary acne is caused because these individuals overproduce skin cells and sometimes produce millions more than the average person. When these extra millions of skin cells try to renew and shed, they get trapped in the pores and cause breakouts and blackheads.
Once people with chronic & hereditary acne understand this concept, then they can start their journey of clearing up their skin and getting that acne free complexion that they always wanted!
My recipe for success looks like this: Prodermalin Gentle Cleanser and Calming Moisturizer to soothe and calm the irritation of the acne. Yes, acne is inflammation and it needs to be soothed to heal and not scar. I would add in the Celloxylin Enzyme Activated Micro Scurb DAILY. Yes, daily because if you produce millions more skin cells than the average person you will need constant gentle exfoliation to keep those extra millions of dead shedding skin cells from hanging on to your face. I also suggest using the Celloxylin 20EX Acid Peel about 2-3 times per week. The 20EX peel will get the majority of those dead skin cells off of the skin, while the the daily scrub will keep them from building back up so quickly between uses of the peel, and the Prodermalin Cleanser and Moisturizer will calm, soothe, hydrate, and help to balance the pH of your skin. In turn, it will build up the natural barrier function of your skin. The Prodermalin includes ingredients that promote healing, as well as help repair the acid mantel of your skin to make it strong and function properly.
If you have chronic or hereditary long term acne, or if you have tried everything else to no avail then give this a shot! You must give everything an honest try for at the very least 3 weeks ,but I prefer 6 weeks. Your skin cells turn over at a rate of approximately 27 days depending on your age, so if you try this routine for at least 1 full cycle of cell turnover, I believe you will see a world of difference in your skin. You must first know your acne in order to know how to treat it.
