Problematic Skin

Definition:

Acne occurs when a pore or hair follicle becomes clogged with natural sebum and dead skin cells. Bacteria – known as Propionibacterium – lives in the skin. When this bacteria enters and infects the clogged pores, it causes inflammation. There are different types of acne: Non-inflammatory acne such as whiteheads (closed comedones) and blackheads (open comedones). Inflammatory acne types such as papules, pustules (pimples), nodules and cysts.

Understanding Problematic Skin:

The contributing factors for problematic skin may include genetics, hormones, hygiene, incorrect use of skincare products, stripping of the skin’s natural oil barrier, diet, stress, sleep patterns, medication, solar exposure and smoking. In more severe cases, acne scarring is formed as a result of inflammatory or cystic acne. The pore or follicle swells due to the accumulation of excess oil, impurities and bacteria which forces the follicle wall to break. There are also different types of acne scarring: Ice Pick Scars (deep pits), Boxcar Scars (angular scars – which normally occur on the temple and cheeks), Rolling Scars (wave-like appearance) and Hypertrophic (thickened) scars.
