What Causes Acne?

The most common cause of acne is clogged pores due to excess sebum production or dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin. Sebum is an oily substance produced by our body’s sebaceous glands which helps keep our skin hydrated and protected against bacteria, dirt and other irritants. When too much sebum builds up in our pores combined with dead skin cells, it creates an ideal environment for bacteria growth which leads to inflammation and breakouts.

Hormones also play a role in causing acne as fluctuations in hormones such as testosterone or estrogen can increase oil production leading to blocked pores. Stress levels may also contribute to acne flare-ups since stress triggers hormone changes that lead to excessive oil production resulting in more pimples appearing on your face or back. Diet has been linked as another factor influencing whether someone will suffer with acne.

What Blocks the Pores and Causes Acne?

Our pores can be blocked by the excessive collection of dead skin cells, a naturally occurring oil called sebum, plus harmless bacteria that reside on the surface. Additionally, hormones shift due to diet or stress; medications taken can also have an effect. To maintain healthy-looking skin, it’s critical to focus on daily habits and lifestyle choices as well.

How to Manage Acne Skin in Between Hydrafacials

By utilizing effective home care products containing active ingredients, we can manage acne between hydrafacials. In fact, many High Street items can even contribute to the clogging up of pores since they simply lack adequate potency and strength for effectively removing such buildup. This is why investing in quality skincare with powerful components is key; after all, what’s the point of doing something if you’re not using the right tools?

Active cleansers, such as those with medical-grade salicylic acid, are the perfect way to keep your skin clean and free of buildup. These ingredients have an amazing ability to remove any impurities that accumulate on our faces day after day. By regularly using active cleansers, we can ensure oxygen is able to penetrate into pores more freely since they won’t be clogged up from built-up dirt and oils. Combining this routine with regular Hydrafacials will guarantee a lasting result in keeping buildups away for good!
