Acne is an affliction that has always been a problem for teenagers, as well as sometimes those in their twenties and older sufferers would prefer a clearer complexion and as acne can sometimes cause long-term damage to skin, a solution is much in demand.

When you pop a pimple, the first thing it does is change your pimple into an open sore. Despite being able to get most of the white pus out through popping the pimple, you'll still be exposing your wound to the chance of infection, starting the cycle all over again. Popping pimples might seem like a good idea, but it can actually only aggravate the problem.

Something else that can happen when you pop pimples is you scatter the bacteria, dirt and oil to the surrounding skin. This can make pimples pop out all over a larger area.

Acne is a difficult problem to solve, as scientists have yet to understand exactly what causes it. A lot of research has been done into the factors which can affect the development of acne, and these are becoming clearer, but we still do not have an absolute understanding of the exact sequence of events that lead up to an acne breakout.

What we do know is that the following factors are connected to the development of acne:

Excess sebum production
Over production of keratin (a tough protein) in follicles
Fast growth of a certain bacterium (Propionibacterium acnes)
Inflammation
Immune responses
The above reasons highlight the importance of not popping pimples! One of the factors listed above is a bacterium known to be linked with acne. It is always present when acne lesions occur so the theory is that by dealing with this bacterium, acne can be reduced.

Prebiotics - good for you inside and out

Prebiotics are probably better known in relation to nutrition than to skin care products but are in fact helpful on the outside as well as in - such as by tackling acne bacteria on the skin.

Prebiotics are useful because they help the growth of probiotics, good bacteria which make the skin less hospitable for the acne bacteria to survive. They excrete natural antibiotics, increase competition for nutrients, lower the pH of the skin and help to prevent the acne bacteria from growing together.

This effect of promoting the good flora on the skin whilst at the same time inhibiting the undesirables is a combination that suggests acne may be helped naturally. Prebiotics have been described as "a gentle and sustainable alternative to undirected irritable antibacterial ingredients."

Prebiotics in natural skin care products

There are organic products that use a type of prebiotic called an oligosaccharide, which is sourced from natural sugars. It works in the way described above, promoting good bacteria and limiting the growth of the acne bacteria.

Acne very often affects those in their teens and twenties so we have included this prebiotic as part of an organic skin care range especially designed for young skin. This is just one of the gentle, natural ingredients used in organic skin products to achieve an advanced, proven action to improve skin health.

The use of plant extracts such as Green Tea extract, rich in antioxidants and effective at reducing inflammation, along with essential oils rich in Omega-3&6 to encourage a clear complexion. With the excellent organic skin products available, there's no reason why you have to pop pimples again!
