THE CAUSES OF ACNE
The stress teenagers experience as they head back to school can often leave its mark on their faces. On top of hormonal changes teens who participate in sports often experience more breakouts during their sports season. This is due to excessive sweating, dirt and rubbing their skin. Teens can unknowingly cause more harm than good to their skin. It is important that teens understand how to keep a fresh face by keeping acne under control.
When the body is under stress it produces greater amounts of androgen hormone. This can then cause skin glands to generate larger amounts of oil. Oil build up, bacteria and debris can then become trapped, triggering an inflammatory response. Any pressure including squeezing pimples can excessively irritate acne. This can also force oil and bacteria deeper into the skin layers. This is what causes cysts and further trauma. Fortunately we offer a variety of anti-acne treatments and products to help reduce breakouts as part of Wells Acne Care Program.
