Acne is a common skin condition that happens when hair follicles under the skin become clogged. Oil and dead skin cells plug the pores, and outbreaks of lesions, known as pimples or zits, can happen. The face is the main area of the skin that is where the outbreaks appear, but it can also appear on the back, chest, and shoulders.
Usually for most people, acne issues tend to go away by the time they reach their thirties, but some people in their forties and fifties continue to have this skin problem, which is often known as adult acne.
Some factors that directly contribute to acne are: excess oil production, pores becoming clogged by “sticky” skin cells, bacteria, and inflammation.
Some indirect factors that influence acne, include hormones, stress, and the menstrual cycle in women, all of which can influence oil production. Your hair products, skin care products, and makeup, can also clog pores. Another factor is diet, which can influence inflammation throughout the body. Some of us have medications which trigger acne, these may include corticosteroids, anabolic steroids, and lithium.
Having a professional diagnosis your skin is a good step towards improving it. Using ozone therapy is also an alternative. Ozone therapy is a treatment that combines ozone and oxygen to disinfect the skin and improve its overall appearance. Although the effectiveness of ozone therapy may vary depending on age, skin type, and issues to be dealt with, this skincare treatment has the ability to implant visible smoothness, brightness, and freshness to the skin immediately after the procedure. Check out our OxyDerm Kit which uses ozone therapy to rid skin of acne, improve skin-tone and texture.
