Common Skin Problems
Many skin problems show that something is out of balance internally and externally. Nothing occurs in isolation in the body, and when something appears on the surface, it is the result of something taking place on the inside. For natural, and healthy beauty, you have to approach it from every angle, from the inside to the outside. Here are some of the most common skin problems:
Acne is common disorder of the oil glands when overactive sebaceous (oil) glands secrete too much oil (sebum) in the skin. This is characterized by the recurring formation of blackheads, white heads, and pimples. Acne occurs primarily on the face and sometimes on the back, shoulders, chest and arms. The incidence of acne is greatest during puberty, adolescence, and when hormones influencing the secretion of oil glands are at their peak level of activity such as during stress, emotional problems, menstruation, menopause and exercising.
Another cause of acne can be dirt, oil and dead skin accumulated inside the pores, plugging the pores and preventing the flow of sebum. When bacteria builds up, pimples can form and acne may develop, often as an indication of an internal toxin condition. Other causes or contributing factors include allergies, a poor diet, dehydration, environmental pollution, heredity, over sun exposure, and weak immunity.

Dermatitis is the skin's reaction to chemicals or environmental elements. It causes the skin to become irritated and inflamed, itchy and red, dry and flaky. When certain substances contact the skin and cause an allergic reaction, it is called "contact dermatitis". Examples of substances causing contact dermatitis are: deodorants, bra closures, chemicals, clothing dyes, cosmetics, detergents, hair coloring, hair perm solutions, leather processing chemicals, nickel in jewellery, perfumes and fragrances, poison ivy, solvents, wrist watches, etc. See our qualified dermatologist in Apollo Clinic, J.P Nagar if you are experiencing these problems.
Eczema appears as dry patches of skin with cracking, crusting, redness and swelling, often with weeping sores or watery blisters. The skin becomes hot, inflamed and itchy. Stress, cleaning compounds, colognes, cosmetics, detergents, food allergies, household chemicals, soaps and synthetic perfumes can cause or aggravate eczema. Eczema may also be a way of eliminating toxins from the body. See our qualified dermatologist in Apollo Clinic, J.P Nagar if you are experiencing ECZEMA problems.
Psoriasis shows up as bright red, inflamed skin with raised, dry, silvery scales. Skin cells of psoriasis suffer grow about five times faster than the skin can shed old cells. Dead skin accumulates in crusty patches on the elbows, knees, lower back, buttocks, around the nails, scalp or chest. In severe cases, psoriasis can cover the entire body. Heredity plays a major role in the development of psoriasis, while emotional factors and stress often determine the frequency and severity of outbreaks. Bacterial infections, drugs, illness, sunburn, surgery, and viruses can also trigger or aggravate outbreaks of psoriasis.
