Even though we’re all staying inside, a new spot is never a welcome addition to the face whether other people will see it or not. An inflamatory skin process, Acne can be caused by multiple different things, however one of the most common is our hormones. Hormones such as androgens, including testosterone, increase the production of sebum in skin, and this with dead skin cells can block pores, leading to inflammation and spots. This is the main culprit for the breakouts, that no woman seems to be immune from, that arrive just before their period. Acne can both lower confidence and in more severe cases can be painful, so it’s important to treat the problem rather than just concealing it. If you have mild to moderate acne, it’s best to start off with topical agents and the right skincare routine. We have teamed up again with expert skincare brand La Roche-Posay to discuss the main types of acne and the best tips and advice on how to treat acne at home!
