What is acne exactly?
MALFUNCTIONING OIL GLANDS
Acne is essentially a skin issue that involves the oil glands at the base of the hair follicles. It commonly occurs during puberty when these oil glands come to life (because they are stimulated by hormones) If acne is left untreated it can leave severe scarring.
GETTING TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM
What causes acne? While the cause of acne is not completely understood, and varies from person to person, here are some contributing factors:
Hormones: Acne is common in teenagers because they have an increase in hormone production. During puberty, both genders produce high levels of androgens, the male sex hormones that include testosterone. Testosterone signals the body to make more sebum, thus causing acne.
Bacteria: Excess sebum clogs the openings to hair follicles – especially those on the face, neck, chest, and back. Bacteria grow in these clogged follicles.
Improper skin care: Using the wrong skincare can cause an inflammatory response triggering acne. Come in for a personalized skincare regimen or schedule a virtual one here!
