Having acne can be a difficult thing to go through, but almost everyone does it, especially teenagers. The emotional, physical and psychological effects of acne can manifest in a number of different negative ways, but there are options. Acne does not have to be such a burden. Our 100% organic acne systems will help quickly heal breakouts, clear your skin and visibly erase the aftermath of scars and marks that are caused from it.
What Causes Acne?
The first step to clearing and preventing breakouts is to understand how they form.
Acne occurs when glands in the follicles of the skin become overactive. These glands produce sebum, an oily substance that helps stop the skin from drying out. Most people with acne produce too much sebum, and the combination of sebum and dead skin cells forms a plug that blocks the follicle. If the blocked follicle is close to the skin surface, it balloons outwards and forms a whitehead. If the plug is at the top of the follicle and opens onto the skins surface, it can be seen as a blackhead. Our organic acne systems will help clear these clogged pores and breakouts, preventing acne from forming. Bacteria that lives on the skin, and Is usually completely harmless, can then infect the plugged follicles. This infection causes pus to form and the surrounding skin to become red, sore, and inflamed. Areas of skin with the most follicles are the face, upper back and chest, which explains why the worst signs of acne tend to occur in these regions.
The key to preventing this bacterial infection is to maintain a target PH level on the skins surface. Our organic acne systems contain high levels of astringentproperties, creating a PH level that bacteria cannot thrive on. Furthermore, our use of the worlds most exotic and powerful acne fighting ingredients will quickly kill any bacteria that is currently thriving on the skin, allowing the infected areas to quickly heal and thus clearing your skin. Also containing high levels on alpha-hydroxy acids, our organic acne systems will not only clear your skin fast, but will erase any damage left behind from previous acne; resulting in smoother, brighter clearer skin.
Following these simple steps, you can prevent acne before it has a chance to form.
