Your Guide to

ACNE & BREAKOUTS

Acne is characterized by hyperactivity of oil producing glands in the skin (sebaceous glands) which become inflamed (infected) and result in the formation of characteristic acne pimples, pustules and cysts.

Acne and Breakouts is a multifactorial disorder and no two individuals suffering from acne have identical aetiology. 

 

 

What Causes Breakouts?

Acne is the single most common skin disorder affecting young men and women all around the world. In clinical practice, managing inflamed acne and acne related scarring is what we do every day.

Acne often effects the self-confidence and self-esteem of the individuals suffering from it. Unmanaged acne can result in permanent scarring of face, neck, shoulders and chest.

Common redness and inflammation appears caused by bacteria that gets stuck inside hair follicles.

Pustules form when blood cells rush to the area to ward off infection, creating that pus and oil buildup.

Ingredients to reduce the build up of sebum oil which blocks these pores will reduce further breakouts from appearing.

What Causes Acne?

There are several underlying contributory factors which include:

· Genetic Predisposition.

· People living in warmer climates.

· Consumption of certain food such as processed carbs, cordials and carbonated drinks.

· Excessive use of make-up on the skin which can block skin pores

· Gut health and microbiome disorder

· Prolonged UV Exposure (sun damage).

· Alcohol and cigarette smoking.

How to control Acne:

Acne is a very challenging condition to manage. It is important to seek expert medical advice earlier on to minimize the risk of scarring. Eliminating or reducing any triggering environmental and dietary factors (mentioned above) is often helpful to control acne.
