Blemishes, Acne & Problem Skin
Blemishes and acne is a skin problem that begins when oil and dead skin cells clog up your pores.
Blackheads, blemishes, whiteheads or pimples are all caused by the over production of sebum from the sebaceous gland.
This build up of dead skin cells can make the skin appear uneven and dull due to blocked pore ducts. Whilst the temptation to exfoliate is great, this can aggravate the condition further if not done so properly.
Choosing the right facial product for individual skin types is also fundamental in controlling problem skin.
Acne and the stigma of ‘problem skin’ is usually prevalent in adolescence and at hormonal times of the month. Hormonal imbalances can prompt excess sebum production and therefore breakouts. Bacteria (pacne) within pores can add to sensitivity and inflammation of the area.
Usual influencers such as poor diet, alcohol, wheat intolerance will also affect the severity of breakouts. Prevalence of good fats within the diet and a healthy daily intake of water are positive combatants. Acne breakouts can also be an inflammatory response to stress.
