Acne is the visible end result of hormonal, bacterial and inflammatory disturbances. Blocked pores trap oil produced by our sebaceous glands, initiating an ideal environment for the growth of pimples bacteria. The resulting inflammation produces acne or deeper lumps such as cysts or nodules.

Do not worsen your acne! Squeezing or picking pimples will only increase swelling and can lead to scarring. Although it may be hard, try to keep your hands away from your pimples and let nature take its course.

Whenever you have acne, endeavor to see your doctor. It can be more than skin deep. Often, acne doesn't just affect us physically; it can also have an emotional impact that may cause: anxiety, self-consciousness, depression and even social withdrawal. That is why finding an effective acne treatment is crucial.

However, Acne Cleansers can help to remove accumulated oil, dirt, sweat and makeup from the surface of your skin, which makes it easier for your skin to absorb topical acne treatments. Nevertheless, too much of acne cleansers usage can also lead to irritated and dry skin. Read the label and use acne cleansers only once or twice a day
