Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder characterised by pimples, blackheads and whiteheads.
It often arises at puberty when the body dramatically increases its production of androgens, (male sex hormones). These hormones stimulate the production of keratin, (type of protein) and sebum, (an oily skin lubricant). If sebum is secreted faster than it can move through the pores, a blemish arises. The excess oil makes the pores sticky, allowing P- Bacteria, which feeds on the sebum to proliferate and become trapped inside the pore.
If you suffer with any form of Acne you will know how this effects your self esteem and the struggle is long and tedious. The emotions that go along with the rollercoaster of dealing with this skin issue are exhausting!! The different opinions and advice you receive along the way confusing.
We have spent the last 8 years trialing and testing different treatments and taking not of each clients journey with medication, diet and various products and treatment options.
The main causes of acne are:
