Acne on skin is formed by the entrapment of dead cells & oils in the hair follicles and further inflamed due to bacteria ?
☀️ Reasons for acne:
- Excess sebum (oil) production
- Clogged pores
- Bacterial infections
- Diet, pollution & lifestyle
? How does acne feel/look like?
- Non inflammatory: non reacted with bacteria: blackheads, whiteheads, bumps
- Inflammatory: reacted with bacteria: pimples/pustules/papules
? Why does dry skin get acne?
If the skin is too dry/ isn't provided with external moisture, the body releases excess sebum to compensate and this causes acne
? Why does normal skin get acne?
If the skin is exposed to extra external humidity either through environmental changes/ wrong product usage, these extra oils cause acne in the skin
? A quick trivia: Hence using the right moisturiser is the first step to reduce oil production in the skin & thus to combat acne!
