Acne is one of the most common skin conditions out there. The causes range from hormonal imbalance, oil production, dead skin cells, clogged pores bacteria, and an unhealthy diet consisting of dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels, and chips as well as chocolate.
Objective: Balance and regulate sebaceous glands’ activity in oily skin, reduce excess sebum, inflammation and control acne breakouts
Oily skin is characterized by excess sebum, a naturally produced mixture of fats, oils and waxy matter. The main cause of acne is chronic inflammation in the skin that occurs when sebaceous glands and hair follicles become blocked. This is caused by the accumulation of sebum, debris and dead skin cells inside the ducts leads to the formation of lesions called comedones (blackheads and whiteheads).
Propionibacterium acnes is a bacteria linked to acne development. The P. acne bacteria thrive in the hair follicle shaft and trigger inflammation when follicles become blocked due to hyperactivity of the sebaceous glands. When acne is not treated, scar tissue may form in the area during the healing process and remains even after the acne has passed.
