Murad Canada Acne

Whether a single blemish or face full of multiple lesions, it's all acne.

Acne can occur on the face, neck, chest, shoulders and upper back. The most common skin disorder in the United States, acne (acne vulgaris) is a chronic condition that affects all ages, every ethnicity and both sexes. Though not curable, it is highly manageable and controllable.

How does it happen? What causes acne

Acne affects nearly 17 million people in the U.S., making it the most common skin disease in the country. But why does it happen? When skin is functioning optimally, the sebaceous glands produce oil that empties onto the skin's surface. At the same time, dead skin cells are shed at a normal rate as newer, fresher cells rise to the surface. Sometimes, these dead cells shed too fast, clump together and clog the pore. This is called non-inflammatory acne. If this plug stays below the skin's surface, it is called a "closed comedone" or whitehead. If the plug reaches the skin's surface and is exposed to air, an "open comedone" or blackhead forms. Contrary to popular belief, the black color is not caused by dirt but rather is due to a process of oxidation.

Besides these non-inflammatory blemishes, you may also have larger, more inflamed breakouts. Inflammatory acne starts when the combination of excess skin cells and oil cause pore-aggravating bacteria to develop. This leads to pimples, redness and overall irritation.

Treating acne: the Murad difference

There are also a number of skin conditions that resemble acne such as, eczema, perioral dermatitis and folliculitis. While they may not involve all of the factors that cause real acne, they do have one thing in common – inflammation. The good news is that Murad Acne products address ALL of the factors of acne and skin breakouts, reducing cell build-up, excess oil and inflammation. Every product contains the three key ingredients in the Murad recipe, hydrating agents, anti-inflammatories, and antioxidants, along with specific acne-fighters, which work together to provide the best environment for achieving optimal skin health. In keeping with Murad's inclusive health™ philosophy, the acne line also features a patented internal supplement to treat acne breakouts from the inside. So, whether you have real acne or something that just looks like acne, Murad can put you on the path to healthy, beautiful skin.

Clear skin starts with skin care. It starts in the morning and it continues while you sleep. Cleanse. Treat. Moisturize. Repeat daily, and relax. Feel great because you look great!
