Acne

Your skin type, acne severity and amount of affected areas are factored to customise the most effective acne treatment. This is because there are various reasons that cause acne and it differs for each individual even if they were all caused by overproduction of sebum in the pores.

Acne is a symptom of a bacterial infection caused by clogged, oily pores. Inflammation sets in and causes the red bump because of thriving bacteria. Other factors that aggravate this chronic inflammatory condition is stress, hormones, occlusion and cosmetic products that contain allergens.

When you suffer from multiple painful red spots, yellow pustules as well as acne cysts around the jawline and back, you are suffering from severe acne.

What is acne and its impacts on health?

Almost 80% of individuals suffer from acne, a common chronic skin condition in their lives, especially during their adolescent and young adult phases. It is known that 20% of severe acne sufferers have permanent acne scarring and mental illnesses. Depression is a reported symptom by mild acne sufferers, alongside with suicidal thoughts. The number doubles for severe acne sufferers. It stems from the fear of not being attractive by other people, leading to detachment from society, socially then from self.

The causation of acne is the basis of acne treatment, but the mental consequences of acne cannot be ignored. The fear of not being good enough, not looking good enough and how other people perceive the individual leads to detachment from society, detachment from friends and detachment from self.

Thankfully, there are multiple formulations to clear acne that caters to a different individual, lifestyle and need.
