Acne

Acne is a skin condition triggered by the oil glands within the skin and causes an outbreak of spot. Although it is not life threatening, acne can cause us to be very self conscious. If untreated it can lead to future scarring in adulthood which can further affect how we feel about ourselves. That said, acne is not just a problem experienced through your teenage years but is also a common condition among adults.

What causes it?

Acne is caused by a number of things including:

  • Hormone changes relating to stress, puberty, menstruation and/or pregnancy
  • High levels of humidity and sweating
  • Unbalanced diet
  • Greasy/oily make up
  • Particular drugs (i.e. anti-epilepsy, steroids, etc.)
  • High levels of humidity and sweating
