We have all faced the problem of acne at one time or the other in our lives. Studies have shown that 85% of people at some time or other in their lives face this horrible problem of acne. For some, it ends soon whereas for others it creates havoc. There are acne treatments available in the market that are too expensive to afford and these treatments are conventional and can lead to many other problems in the long run and sometimes these treatments can lead to skin irritation, dryness and redness.
Let us understand first what is the root cause of the problem only then we can de-root it and work on the solutions!
It begins when there are dirt and oil present in the pores which can lead to the formation of dead skin cells. Each and every pore in our skin is connected with a sebaceous gland which functions to produce oil called as sebum. When there is extra sebum production then it hinders the functioning of the entire system. The over sebum production can clog up the pores and which can further lead to the growth of the bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes or P.acnes. When the pores of the skin get clogged then dead skin cells are formed and which leads to the formation of acne on your skin.
