What causes acne?
Acne occurs when the pores in your skin become blocked with oil, bacteria, dead skin cells and dirt. When this occurs, your skin is likely to develop a ‘pimple’ or a ‘zit’. If areas highly affected by pimples or zits you may have acne.
Each pore is an opening to a hair follicle, which is made up of a subcutaneous oil gland. This gland produces sebum, a type of oil, which comes out of the pores via hair which keeps the skin soft and lubricated. However, when too much oil is produced the pores can become blocked which causes outbreaks. If this is then combined with dead skin cells and bacteria, the acne can become more severe.
Can acne be prevented?
Acne is difficult to prevent. It’s most common during puberty due to the hormonal changes the body goes through. These hormones can change the production oil in the pores leading larger outbreaks on the skin. Due to this type of acne being hormonal it makes it harder to prevent, but steps can be put in place to improve the appearance of it.
- Daily cleansing of the skin with mild soap to remove the excess dirt, oil and bacteria
- Keeping your hair clean and keeping it out of your face
- Using water-based makeup or non-pore-clogging makeup
- Not squeezing or picking pimples. This spread the bacteria and oils
- Not regularly touching your face
Following these precautions, whilst using the epiderma5 acne gel, can greatly help the appearance of active acne.
