How is Acne caused and how does good skin care prevent Acne ?
These are a few causes which lead to Acne which further ends up in scarring and blemishes which include extensive use of chemical-based beauty products. Too much exfoliation can lead to Acne too as the epidermal layer, which protects the skin, is washed away due to over-scrubbing. Another factor is oil that gets trapped in pores halting the skin’s respiration process which gives rise to pimples. External factors such as air-pollution, exposure of skin in excessive sunlight for a long period of time cannot be ruled out as these together attack the skin causing break-outs and acne. Good skin care acts as safety mechanism for the skin. Clearing off the dirt that gets accumulated on the surface and unclogging the pores, the skin is detoxified and cleansed helping in proper oxygenation of the skin cells preventing acne, blemishes and further skin irritations.
