WHAT CAUSES ACNE?
Acne affects approximately 85% of the global population and 12% of females over the age of 25. The disease is caused by Cutibacterium acnes bacteria which take over the natural flora of the skin that contributes to pathogenic factors such as blockage of pores, overproduction of sebum and inflammation. This leads to the formation of unsightly blackheads, whiteheads and pustules, painful cysts and ultimately the aftermath, scarring and pigmentation.
Because our skin is the most visible part of our bodies, conditions such as acne are often linked to depression and a lack of self-confidence.
