What causes acne and how can I treat my breakouts?
Acne comes in many different forms, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, cysts and many more! But they all have similar causation… The hair follicles on your skin (what makes up your pores) contain oil glads that make sebum. This is a natural oil made by your body to lubricate your skin and hair (way cool!). The combination of sebum overproduction and dead skin cells can lead to clogged pores, which is what leads to acne!
With this information in mind, it’s easy to understand why there are external factors that lead to more acne. Stress, for example, leads to your glands producing more sebum. Over-exfoliation, leads to drying out of the skin and then overproduction of sebum to ‘correct’ the dry skin. Exercise leads to dirt, sweat and dead skin cells to be mixed and stuck in the pores.
Kamedis’ Acne CLEAR line uses products that work to correct the sebum production of your pores while still maintaining hydrated and resilient skin. Sometimes, external factors that cause acne are out of your hands. But taking care of your skin is completely in your control, so make sure you’re choosing a solution that will care for your acne gently and efficiently.
