About Acne

If you have ever had a pimple, you’ve had acne. It is a hormonal and inflammatory disease that affects all ethnicities, particularly during adolescence and early adulthood, and is found primarily on the face and upper body

Acne lesions occur when the pores of the skin become clogged, trapping skin oil and bacteria inside, leading to a variety of acne lesions, from mild acne to severe acne that can scar

Factors that may make acne worse: genetics, hormones, physical irritation of the skin, stress, sunburns, cosmetics, and diet.

Avoid pore-clogging ingredients, and always pop correctly.
