Acne & Oily Skin

The skin is the body's biggest organ, and we all know that how your skin looks affects your mood, confidence and overall sense of wellbeing. Acne is a skin condition which impacts both mood and confidence, but treatments are available to alleviate many of acne's symptoms.

What causes acne?

Acne consists of spots like whiteheads, blackheads and cysts which reoccur on a long-term basis. Research suggests that the condition is caused by a sensitivity to androgen hormones - the main one being testosterone. Hormonal imbalances that can lead to acne include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women and thyroid imbalances. Teenagers going through puberty are also likely to go through a bout of acne as hormone levels adjust. When hormones become out of balance, sebum production can increase - which leads to more oily and acne-prone skin. While acne itself is often a result of hormonal changes or imbalances, maintaining a good skincare regime can avoid dirt building up and therefore can result in fewer acne outbreaks. In order to reduce the likelihood of acne cysts or deep cuts becoming scarred tissue, keep the affected area clean and try not to squeeze pimples - as this often results in the infection going deeper into the dermis.
