When the sebaceous glands in the skin overproduce sebum, pores become blocked. This causes acne breakouts characterised by blemishes, blackheads, whiteheads, pustules and inflammation. Hormone fluctuations, stress and environmental factors can also play a part. It affects approximately  80% of 11 to 30 year olds and some people can also suffer from adult acne in later life.

The combination of oil and sweat keeps our skin healthy and elastic. However cleansing the skin with alkaline products like soap and other harsh foaming products can strip the skin causing an imbalance. The body tries to correct this by producing more oil thus exacerbating the problem. It is important to use products that help balance the pH level of the skin and also include antibacterial ingredients.
Exfoliate the skin (remove the dead skin cells) twice a week. Avoid touching and picking at pimples throughout the day. Gentle exposure to the sun can be very helpful during the safest exposure times (early in the day or late afternoon). Follow a balanced diet including lots of fresh vegetables and fruit and drink plenty of water
