Acne affects 70% of adolescents and up to 80% of individuals at some point in their life, so if it is affecting you don’t worry it’s common! The condition typically comprises of a combination of blackheads and whiteheads, pustules, papules, nodules and scarring.

Main causes of acne

Acne is generally caused by a rise in androgen hormones (contribute to growth and reproduction in both men and woman), which are often overactive during teenage and young adult years. The combination of sensitivity to these hormones and surface bacteria accumulating on the skin as well as the presence of fatty acids within oil glands, can all lead to acne. However, certain external factors can often cause acne and/or make it worse, such as:

  • Fluctuating hormones during menstrual cycle and puberty
  • Inconsistent or an inefficient skin care routine
  • Picking or scratching acne sores
  • Increased cortisol levels due to stress
  • Genetics

The signs and symptoms of acne

Even though acne usually occurs on the face, neck and shoulders, it can also occur on the arms, legs, trunk and buttocks. The signs and symptoms to look out for include:

  • Pustules – small red bumps containing pus
  • Papules – small red bumps with no pus
  • Cysts
  • Crusting of skin bumps
  • Scarring of the skin
  • Redness around skin eruptions
  • Blackheads and Whiteheads
