"I hate my skin!"
Sound familiar? Acne is said to affect up to 40% of adults. The chronic, inflammatory skin condition can be notoriously difficult to self-diagnosis. The term is frequently and inaccurately used to describe everything from the odd hormonal pimple to chronic cysts.
While the exact causes of acne have not yet been conclusively identified, there are several factors that may contribute to its development. These factors include: genetics, hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, and before or during women’s menstrual cycles. Acne can also be triggered by stress, oil-clogging beauty products, and medication such as birth control or corticosteroids.
Range of Treatments - But We're Different!
Acne is treated commonly by medications that work by reducing oil production and swelling, or by treating bacterial infection. Sounds great right? Well these medications do not come without side effects. When looking for a solution, it’s our recommendation to seek natural help, as they can be just as effective without the dangerous side effects.
