Acne causes and solutions


Acne is a disorder of the skin characterized by whiteheads, blackheads, large pores, papules, cysts, increased oil production and inflammation.

Causes of Acne:

•Increased buildup of dead skin cells within pores
•Increased oil production
•Hormonal imbalances

Hormonal Acne
More common in adolescents and middle-aged women, and is usually accompanied by an overproduction of oil (sebum). Cyclical breakouts are usually seen around the chin and lower cheeks.

Cosmetic Acne
Caused by irritating and pore-clogging ingredients found in everyday products such as makeup, laundry detergents and hair products.

Inflammatory Acne
Characterized by redness, inflammation, and discomfort.

Asphyxiated Acne
Characterized by roughness of the skin, the buildup of dead skin cells, with oil and bacteria trapped beneath the skins surface. Caused by dry weather and drying ingredients like alcohol.

Bacterial Acne
Caused by the increased production of bacteria within the pore.

Cystic Acne
Consists of large, painful nodules beneath the surface of the skin, which can remain for weeks or months. The depth and inflammation of cystic acne can cause scarring of the skin.
