When our children reach adolescence, their skin is put to the test through various upheavals including hormonal (the now more dynamic hormonal activity influences the production of sebum which increases), revealing some imperfections: acne ...
The causes of premature acneThe hydrolipidic film, the skin's barrier, naturally produces sebum from pre-adolescence to maintain the skin's hydration and suppleness. This sebum secretion is influenced by many factors: hormonal variations, the nervous state, or poor breakdown of fats provided by food . When the secretion of sebum is too important, the pores will clog. Then appear blackheads that can become infected and evolve into unsightly pimples: acne particularly common in adolescence.
When unsuitable products get involved...
The use of products that are too concentrated and abrasive, an unsuitable skincare routine or a poor diet amplify acne . In fact, many people think that oily skin doesn't need moisturizer . A nonsense because on the contrary, a sufficiently hydrated skin will produce less sebum, thus reducing the appearance of pimples.
