litte about acne

What is acne? 

Acne is a skin condition caused by clogged pores, oils- sebums- naturally produced by our skin to maintain skin hydration; impurities and dead cells cause clogged pores. 

There are different forms of acne; 

  • whiteheads 
  • blackheads 
  • pimples
  • nodules 
  • cystic lesions

Teenagers are the most common age group to get acne, but acne affects all age groups. For those like me who are born with oily/acne-prone skin, acne will accommodate me throughout my adulthood. 

What causes acne?

Here are some of the factors that cause acne for the majority 

  • Genes 
  • Hormones 
  • Skincare products
  • Diet/ Habit 
  • Stress/ anxiety

The most crucial factor is to choose a gentle yet effective facial cleanser. Ideally, soap-free and p.H balanced. 

After switching to a gentle and p.H balanced facial cleanser formulated for acne-prone skin from Nu Skin, my skin became visibly clearer and smoother after 12 weeks.
