Acne occurs when excess sebum (skin oil) is released in conjunction with an overproduction of skin cells, which causes the pores to be congested with oil, dead cells, and debris. This condition is categorised into four progressive grades. Grade one is non-inflammatory, where only whiteheads and blackheads are present. Grade two demonstrates additional inflammation, papules, and pustules. If grade two advances to grades three and four, your skin will be at risk of infection and deep scarring and will require professional treatment.
Although acne requires patience to manage, combining a good skincare routine with balanced nutrition will work to control breakouts and boost your skin confidence.
