Acne | Know How to Beat It!
Acne develops when the pores of our skin are blocked, become infected, and develop fluid build-up. Red spots, rashes and bumps appear followed soon by blemishes.
Acne most often occurs in places where many skin pores are present. The main concentration is in the face, most commonly around the forehead, cheeks and chin. Acne also develops as deep inflammations such as swelling or cysts.
There are no restrictions of acne occurrence. It occurs in all age brackets, but mostly commonly in adolescents, teens and those in their early 20’s. Eighty percent of teenagers suffer from acne, affecting roughly 17 million people in the US alone.
Acne is considered a common and a normal part of growing from teen to adult – but, it can be controlled with proper use of effective skin care products and our Acne Fighter Kit.
Acne is not caused exclusively by the food we eat, but, in large part by hormonal changes during puberty. Makeup and beauty products generally do not affect acne build-up…oily deposits and lack of cleansing are the big culprits.However, parents who had acne during puberty, generally pass the genetic torch to their children.
