Acne is something most of us have experienced at one time or another. As many as three out of four teenagers have experienced it to some extent. It is most prevelent during adolescence because hormonal changes stimulate the sebaceous glands (oil glands) into producing more sebum (oi!), increasing the chance of acne. While most people outgrow acne in their late teens or early twenties, many continue to be afftected much longer. Aggravation of acne later in life may occur with menstrual periods, use of birth control pills, use of oil-based products, and stress.
What causes acne?
Acne occurs when the oil produced by sebaceous glands does not reach the surface of the skin but is trapped in tiny pores or foil ices, causing a plug.
The Dermesse line of Acne products are indicated for the treatment and management of mild acne by effectively reducing the number of acne pimples and blackheads, and allowing the skin to heal. Daily use of these products will help prevent new acne pimples from forming.
The Dermesse Acne Products are formulated with:
- Salicylic Acid (a Beta Hydroxy Acid) to help unclog pores and open up plugged follicles
- Alpha Hydroxy Acids to promote the exfoliation of the superficial dead skin cells to prevent the clogging of pores
- Herbal extracts to keep the skin moisturized and reduce dryness during the healing process
- Nonionic Srfactant to breakup and reduce the effects of surface oils
