Teenagers are normally faced with this predicament, when their skin is covered with acne. One of the underlying factors that cause this is the male hormones. The other causes can be related to hormonal problems which also affect acne.

“Acne vulgaris” (acne) affects both men, as well as women, especially when they are in the adolescence stage. It also surfaces during the menstrual period, when women are expecting or during menopause. At the adolescent stage, the endocrine sex glands that protect body tissues are secreted. Androgen is the name given to these type of hormones and since it is commonly found in men, they are the worst affected, for this type of skin eruptions.

Androgen has the effect of inducing oil (sebaceous) glands that are generally associated with the hair follicles or pores of the skin. Though the sweat glands continue to secrete and become lively, they are unable to reach the surface of the skin. They begin to form a white dot known as the “white head” when the gland expands and stretches the tissues surrounding it. For some, this secretion becomes discolored, when it undergoes a chemical reaction. This is how blackheads form at the hair shafts. Both the human gland, as well as the hair follicle, continue to stretch and finally rupture, causing infection in the area. It starts by producing the papule and then becoming a pimple or pustule.

Are there any treatments to cure acne that is caused by the hormones? Acne can be cured by you as you practice self-treatment. You have to learn how to take care of your acne by following these steps. Wash your face and upper part of the body, using a mild soap and warm water, thrice daily. Steam

Though many fitness experts insist on consuming large amounts of protein, there is no need to include these in a regular bodybuilding diet. The thumb rule generally followed is a gram of protein, for each pound of one’s body weight. A dieter who weighs 200 pounds would therefore have to eat about 200 grams protein daily. Most of the magazines on body building insist that they eat much more than this amount.

An average adult should ideally eat 0.8 grams of protein for every kilogram of their body weight according to the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) for protein. A person who weighs 175 pounds should therefore consume nearly 64 grams protein per day. The reason these numbers vary is because RDA bases their suggestions on research carried out on men who were attending college. It was found that men require a certain amount of nitrogen to balance their system, though this has not proved very effective, for deciding on the muscle gain or loss. This may cast aspersions on whether the RDA estimate for intake of protein is relevant when considering a diet for body building.

The Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range (AMDR) is of the opinion that the amount of protein consumed in the calories should be at least 10% to 35% of the total quantity. This body was established in 2005 by the Institute of Medicine. It has been observed that both the AMDR and the RDA do not factor in the key component, exercise, when they made their recommendations as they concentrate only on the protein consumption, based on the total calorie intake. For people, who exercise regularly, the amount of proteins incorporated is crucial when following a bodybuilding diet plan.

Since both the AMDR or RDA have not been very
