Zap those Zits For Good

What is acne? Why do you have it? What are the best ways to avoid it and get your glowing skin back? Our RITES skincare expert, Liza-Marie has the answers right here for you.

What is acne?

No one factor causes acne. Acne occurs when the sebaceous (oil) glands are stimulated at the time of puberty or due to other hormonal changes. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages. Sebum (oil) is a natural substance that lubricates and protects the skin. Acne is a condition that occurs when your follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. This leads to inflammation and bacterial infestation of P. Acnes. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads and pimples, and usually appears on the face, chest, upper back and shoulder. Acne signs and symptoms vary depending on the severity of the condition.
Acne treatments work by reducing oil production, fighting bacterial infection and reducing inflammation to help prevent scarring. Look out for power words such as antibacterial, germicidal, healing, repairing, protecting and mattifying on products.

Having oily and problematic skin can be a nuisance and sometimes it may feel that nothing will help keep it at bay. It is important to remember that having oily skin is not about completely getting rid of oil; it is about maintaining balanced skin and finding the right skincare regime that works for you without overly drying your skin.
Every person’s skin is different and there is no “one size fits all” approach to skincare.
