Authors: Abanmi A, Al-Enezi M, Al Hammadi A, Galadari I, Kibbi AG, Zimmo S Abstract Acne vulgaris is a common inflammatory skin disease in the Middle East, similar to other regions of the world. In the Middle East, there is a relatively high proportion of patients with darker pigmentation (Fitzgerald skin types III-VI) who are prone to developing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) as a sequela of acne. Data are sparse on the frequency and characteristics of PIH throughout the world. What information is available indicates that pigmentation problems can be very bothersome for patients and are often quite long...

Hyun Pyo Jhun Identification of medicinal plants and naturally derived compounds as new natural antioxidant and antibacterial sources for topical acne treatment has long been important. To determine anti-Propionibacterium acnes activity and in vitro antioxidant activities, Sanguisorba officinalis L. root (SOR) was extracted with cold water (CWE), hot water (HWE), and methanol (ME), and each extract was fractionated successively with hexane, ethyl acetate (EA), and butanol to determine whether the activities could be attributed to the total phenolic, flavonoid, terpenoid, and condensed tannin contents. Pearson&rsq...

CONCLUSIONS: Mangostins appeared to possess multiple anti-acne activities, including the inhibition of P. acnes growth, regulation of keratinocytes proliferation, and attenuation of skin inflammatory reaction. Hence, mangostins might be developed into a potential therapeutic agent for the treatment of acne. PMID: 30422030 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes) can become an exacerbating factor in acne vulgaris. Clindamycin has been most frequently used for the treatment of inflammatory acne vulgaris. We studied clindamycin susceptibility and resistance determinants of C. acnes isolated from acne patients in Japan. The isolation rate of clindamycin-resistant C. acnes had significantly increased from 20.3 % in 2009-2010 to 44.1 % in 2016-2017. Strains carrying erm(X), which confers high-level resistance to clindamycin, had significantly increased from 1.4 to 11.8 %. Sequence analysis of the resistance determinant showed that e...

Nothing much blooms in winter, but pimples may be an exception. A 2015 study of New England acne patients found the percentage of them who enjoyed a clear complexion was greatest during summer and fall. Winter, on the other hand, tended to be a rough season; rates of moderate-to-severe acne leaped 11% among the study participants in winter compared to summer. One reason your skin tends to act up in cold weather may have to do with sebum, a type of oil that the small glands of the skin secrete. Sebum helps keep your skin properly moist and supple, but too much can cause the cells in your skin to stick together. This can lea...
