What causes acne and breakouts?

At some point we have all suffered from the dreaded teenage spots, time of the month breakouts or adult acne. What causes the breakouts:

  • Sebum & Bacteria – Acne occurs due to an over production of oil known as sebum & dead skin cells getting trapped in the hair follicles. This creates a soft plug which clogs up the hair follicles. The hair follicles will then become infected with bacteria causing redness & inflammation.
  • Hormonal Imbalance – Breakouts can occur during puberty and the monthly menstrual cycle as our hormones play havoc with our bodies & can stimulate excessive sebum production.
  • Diet – A poor diet high in sugar, salt, alcohol, dairy & lacking in water can contribute to inflammation and bacteria in the skin.
  • Skincare Products – Unfortunately, most people are misinformed about which product to use for oily or acne prone skins. The majority of ‘over the counter’ or cosmetic brand products are incredibly harsh, stripping the skin and aggravating the condition!
