Teenage, huh? The age where you experience everything new under the sun. Puberty? Check. Hormonal changes? Check. Acne? Check. Yes, acne, unfortunately, makes an appearance as we grow up. It does seem like there’s no escaping these little eruptions on your skin, but there is. And we, at Jenpharm, with the help of several renowned dermatologists, are here to guide you through the process.
So, what exactly is acne? Acne is basically your hair follicles getting trapped with oils and dead cells. So, these are clogged pores that present themselves as whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, or nodules. While they’re not medically problematic, they do shake a person’s confidence and impact their self-image. Moreover, acne can leave behind its marks (acne scars). In some cases, the pustules/nodular acne is also painful to touch and requires medical intervention (Oral or/and topical medications).
There are numerous factors as to why acne appears or flares up. Climate, Genes, Lifestyle, Stress, and a lot more unseen factors are associated with acne. Generally, in the summer season, people get the most acne since their skin is oily and acne-prone in summers. More oil means more clogged pores and that is the recipe for acne. Moreover, slathering heavily oil-based products on your skin may also clog your pores. Eating fried, unhealthy food also causes more acne because they alter the natural mechanism of your body and it ends up producing excessive sebum that can cause acne.
