understanding skin breakouts

Updated: Apr 9, 2018

Spoiler alert: no cream, serum, soap or #scrub in the world will help you eliminate breakouts. Breakouts are a natural occurrence in your skin. It is the result of what is happening in your body, not a skin condition.

These bumps can be blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or cysts. Teens get acne because of the hormonal changes that come with puberty. ... As the body begins to mature and develop, though, hormones stimulate the sebaceous glands to make more sebum. Pores become clogged if there is too much sebum and too many dead skin cells.

When skin symptoms like acne, rashes, redness, hyper pigmentation or wrinkles appear on your face, it’s your body’s way of telling you that certain imbalances are occurring in your body. These may be completely natural and will pass with time or with your skincare routine. nonetheless, it is recommended you monitor the symptoms and consult a doctor to diagnose cause and potential treatments.
