One of the most common blemish-causing conditions is acne. This can cause both raised pustules and pimples as well as flat blackheads and whiteheads.
These happen when a hair follicle gets clogged with sebum, dirt, or bacteria, and can also be caused by ingrown hairs. Most people have acne during puberty, when hormonal changes cause the body to produce too much sebum, which increases the changes of clogs.
Choosing the right cleansers for oily skin, which are mild, gentle and without any harsh chemicals and additives with right pH balance can reduce sebum, soothe inflammation, and clean out pores for people with mild or moderate acne. However for those with severe acne, may need prescription anti-inflammatories and medications to regulate hormonal changes.
