A regimen that is both anti-bacterial and exfoliating is paramount for someone suffering with acne. The active ingredients found in our custom acne products, such as glycolic acid, calendula, vitamin c, retinol and salicylic acid are considered to be the best time-tested treatments available for treating acne.
Acne is a follicular disorder resulting from dead skin cells mixing with sebum (oil) clogging the follicle thus resulting in the formulation of pimples. It affects 80% of all Americans between the ages of 12 and 24 and sometimes will continue into your 40s and 50s sometimes. It usually occurs at puberty, when the body dramatically increases its production of androgens. These hormones stimulate the production of keratin (a type of protein) and sebum (oil). The excess oil makes the pores sticky, allowing bacteria to become trapped inside.
