What You Need to Know About ACNE.

It Can Affect Anyone
Although acne is most commonly experienced by teenagers
and younger adults, it can affect anyone at any age.
About 5% of women and 1% of men over the age of 25 experience episodes of acne.

What CAUSES IT?

+ Hormones

Change in hormone levels is a common trigger for acne, and a typical occurrence during puberty, and (for women) during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, or for those with polycystic ovary syndrome. The excess sebum caused by hormones affects P. acnes (a usually harmless skin bacterium), aggravating it to cause inflammation and pus. Hormones can also lead to a thickening of the inner lining of the hair follicle, causing blockage of the pores.

+ Genetics

If both your parents had acne, there’s a high likelihood that you’ll experience the same condition.

+ Lifestyle

Smoking, stress, unsuitable skincare, pore-clogging makeup, and climate effects can also contribute to hormonal changes,clogged pores and a disrupted sebum balance.

+ Medication

Certain medications such as steroids, lithium (prescribed for depression and bipolar disorder), bromides and iodides in cough medication, sedatives, and anticonvulsants can also cause acne flare-ups.

Anti-Acne Products Suggestion

Stage 1 acne generally exhibit mild forms of this skin condition. Their skin may have whiteheads, blackheads, and small pimples.

There’s not usually inflammation present with this type of acne breakout, and mild cases like these can often be self-diagnosed.

Usually, this type of breakout occurs on the nose and forehead and most often appears in adolescence. Adults may also experience this type of acne, usually with blackheads on the nose or forehead.

Moderate acne falls under a Stage 2 severity qualification. Those with this grade of acne will likely exhibit a plethora of comedones on the skin. There will be more frequent breakouts, likely accompanied by pustules and papules that may be more sensitive to the touch.

This stage of acne is accompanied by a large amount of inflammation in comparison to the lesser grades. The skin will exhibit numerous papules and pustules, and there may be nodules present.
 

This is the most severe form of acne, and will see skin filled with nodules, cysts, pustules, and papules.
