Are you aware that acne can be caused by at least one of the following:
Hormonal imbalance
Poor/ undesirable diet and lifestyle
Incorrect skin care procedure/routine?
Poor management of acne can result in scarring that ultimately may affect one’s self-esteem or may lead to depression. Consequently, it is important to have the acne condition adequately treated in a wholistic way.

Definition

Acne is defined as an inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands (oil producing glands) of the skin. Acne often appears on the areas of body where there is an excessive production of greasy or oil or sweat.

Accompanying signs & symptoms

Papules, pustules (pimples with pus) and/or blackheads on the face and upper body where oil secreting glands are abundant. In severe cases, these papules and pustules may resolve in cysts, nodules or scarring.

Possible Causes

Poor hygiene of the skin: such as one failing to clean the face or skin properly.
Hormonal imbalance: often seen in young adults and affects people in their puberty
Poor diet: excessive intake of deep-fried, oily and greasy foods, or foods that contain high level of oil or fat
Stress
Poor lifestyle
Inadequate skin care procedure or use of skin care products or cleanser that are not suited to the individual’s skin type.
Physiological Mechanisms

Acnes are formed as the result of excessive oil/grease present that clogs up pores. This sets up an inflammation process as well as attracting oil feeding bacteria.
