What is acne?
The pores become inflamed and fill with cellular debris and excess oils, creating the perfect environment for bacteria to harbour in, which in turn cause papules and pustules to form. Skin suffering from acne often looks red, inflamed and sensitive.
Acne can vary from mild to severe (including surface or cystic acne) and can lead to acne scarring.
What causes acne?
Many different factors can contribute to acne including:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Touching/ picking skin causes infection and spreads bacteria
- Incorrect skin care regime/ products
- Not washing makeup brushes/sponges regularly
