It’s not just teens that have acne, but acne can persist well into adulthood especially for women up to their forties. Acne is a common skin disease that is caused when dead skin cells and sebum get trapped in our pores. Sometimes, bacteria (p.acnes) that live on our skin gets trapped together and thrives in these conditions, causing the pores to become inflamed, red and swollen. Acne can appear as whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts. There are many trigger factors for acne, such as fluctuating hormones, stress, poor skincare habits, greasy makeup for example, and there are some studies that show a poor diet, or a diet rich in dairy and sugar is contributing to the increase in acne sufferers as well.
Treatment of acne can involve a combination of methods such as oral and topical prescription medication, laser therapy, facials, peels, and a good skincare regimen as well as eliminating certain types of foods from our diet.
Skincare products with ingredients such as salicylic acid (BHA), glycolic acid (AHA), benzyl peroxide can help to gently dissolve impurities, clean out clogged pores, renew skin cells to reveal healthier skin underneath, and reduce oil production.
