Have you been getting inconsistent breakouts all over your face or may be on your body? Did you know that acne can strike on any parts of your body. But what acne means in different places? And what does it says about your health?
What cases acne?
There are many different causes to acne. And in many cases you don’t realise that your internal factors such as how much you sleep, how much stress you’re under and what air you’re breathing in can have a direct affect on your complexion. Remember great skin comes from taking care of yourself both internally and what you put on your skin.
Acne is caused by the production of excess sebum. Which is an oil that stops the skin from drying out. This oil clumps together with dead skin cells within your pores, causing an acne lesion or spot.
These lesions vary in size and severity. And form when bacteria enters the pores. Triggering an inflammatory response from the immune system.
