Acne is often caused by excessive hormone production in young men and women. Testosterone is perhaps the biggest culprit for this common skin condition. It can also be related to an overproduction of sebum, which is an oil that’s naturally produced by skin cells. This substance causes blackheads, whiteheads, and other outbreaks in clogged pores. While this skin condition can be frustrating and embarrassing, you do not have to settle for skin that does not feel smooth and healthy. Our team proudly offers a variety of acne treatment options.
Hygiene and Healthy Habits
While it may seem like a no-brainer, a regular hygiene routine is a key first step in a good skincare routine! It’s important to take a shower immediately after intense exercise. The skin might become irritated and inflamed as it rubs against sweat and soaked textiles. If showering isn’t possible, it’s still important to replace sweaty clothing with dry apparel. However, synthetic materials could actually exacerbate acne and other skin problems. Cotton rarely causes any discomfort, but synthetic polyester poses some risks for irritation of the upper body and back.
