If you’re reading this, you or someone you know has probably experienced the reality of Acne and how it can really lower your self-confidence. Acne affects 85% of Australians aged 15 to 24 and can really impact someone’s self-esteem. While it mainly tends to occur during our teenage years many of us can struggle with Acne right up until we are adults. Let’s take a closer look at what is Acne and how GERnétic products can approach it!
When you think of Acne you probably think of oily skin. This is partially true to an extent. Sebum is a naturally healthy skin lubricant and carries dead skin cells through the follicles to the skin’s surface. Problems arise such as whiteheads & blackheads when the skin produces too much sebum and causes the follicles to get blocked, forcing oil to build up under the skin.
Skin cells, sebum, and hair can clump together to form a plug. This plug gets infected with bacteria and swelling then starts to form. Acne comes in many different forms. Whiteheads, blackheads, comedonal acne, solid lesions etc. Acne can break out anywhere on the body, more specifically on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Not only does bacteria cause acne but it can be a sign of hormonal imbalance or digestive issues, which is why it is important to look after your gut health.
GERnétic has done extensive research on how their products can target acne breakouts, let’s take a closer look.
