Acne skin may be caused by a variety of factors – it is not simply a question of age. Acne may occur during puberty, menopause, pregnancy or stress. Bacteria, environmental influences, medications, hormonal oscillations, diet, lifestyle and/or health issues all contribute to skin breakouts.
In addition, there are 2 types of acne: dry acne and oily acne. Dry acne, often hormonal in nature, is characterized by skin that looks and feels dry, yet still experiences breakouts (often painful.) Oily acne is characterized by shiny, oily areas, comedones, pustules and blemishes, deposits, scars and enlarged pores. Our acne regimens are designed to address your type of acne and balance out the root cause – resulting in healthy skin long-term.
