Blemishes Diagnosis and Treatment

By: Juliet Cohen

Blemishes are marks or areas of discoloration on the skin. A blemishes is a mar in the skin caused by pimples, blocked pores, a skin rash or scarring. Some blemishes, such as port-wine stains, are discolorations a person is born with. Other blemishes, particularly acne, are caused by clogged pores. These are often caused by toiletries and cosmetics, particularly night creams, foundations, and moisturizers. Those cosmetics that are most likely to cause blemishes are referred to as comedogenics. Environmental factors, such as pollution, can irritate the skin and cause blemishes to form. Blemishes can also become worse when they come into contact with irritants such as hair and clothing. Stress and hormonal changes can also cause blemishes.

In particular, a hormone called androgen can result in blemishes when it becomes particularly active. Women are particularly inclined to hormonal changes when they enter adulthood and menopause. They are also more likely to develop blemishes during pregnancy or menstruation because of the related hormonal changes. For those suffering from blemishes due to hormonal changes, certain medications can be beneficial. Oral contraceptives and antiandrogens can be helpful for women.
There are also several natural treatment options available to individuals with blemishes. Lemon juice can also be applied to spots in order to bleach them. Rub in some coconut oil before going to bed. Drink lots of water to keep the skin hydrate and detoxified. Use lemon and cucumber if you have oily skin.
