Why do we get acne?
Hormone imbalance in the body at puberty influences the activity or sebaceous gland, causing an increased production of sebum. The sebum may be retained within the sebaceous ducts, causing congestion and bacterial infection of the surrounding tissues.
Who suffers with acne?
Everyone at some point of their life would have had the odd spot or congested area on the skin from the face to the body. Acne is not only found in teenagers through puberty but over the years it has become more common in adults. Why you ask? Lifestyle has changed massively over the years, people are working harder, which influences factors like stress which can cause acne.
