Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point. It causes spots to develop on the skin, usually on the face, back and chest.
Glands in the skin begin to produce excessive amounts of an oily substance called sebum. This blocks small holes in the skin through which hairs grow (hair follicles), causing blackheads and whiteheads.
These are often mild, to inflamed pus-filled pustules and cysts, which can be severe and long lasting and can lead to scarring. Acne is linked to the changes in hormone levels during puberty and is known to run in families. If both your mother and father had acne, it is likely that you will also have acne.
Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during the menstrual cycle or pregnancy, can also lead to episodes of acne in women. I will endeavour to balance any hormonal issues, or/and encourage the liver to function better to improve the appearance of acne.
