Skin Conditions - Acne
Acne not only affects your skin but can have dire consequences on a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem. Roughly 85% of people will experience acne at some point in their lives, making acne the most common of all skin conditions. Some individuals may only experience a mild breakout, while others can wrestle with ongoing breakouts that can last for several years. If that wasn’t bad enough, severe acne breakouts could leave a person’s skin disfigured with scars.
To help prevent acne, avoid over-exfoliation that can trigger your skin to produce more sebum, the oily substance that acne-triggering bacteria thrive in. Be sure to moisturize. Dry skin also triggers the over-production of sebum. Use skincare products labeled as non-comedogenic. Noncomedogenic products are developed to be less likely to cause pore blockage that could result in acne breakouts. Above all, be sure to be consistent. Over time your skin gets used to a routine. Walking outside your skin care regimen can cause your skin to react negatively.
