Good evening people! How was your weekends? As much as I wanted the time to moves slower, it seems that March is coming to an end now. It is a fruitful weekend, with Major All Stars being held in Malaysia and a historical moment should not be forgotten in the e-Sports scene. Anyway, let's kick off a new week with thoughts on acne skin.
Most people with acne are aged between 12 to 25 (and that's me!) , but some younger or older people are having acne too. Acne usually affects the face but it can also affect the back, neck and chest. Generally, the glands produce sebum to keep the skin supple and smooth; however, the more sebum produces, the greasier the skin feels, your acne tend to be worsen.
Studies showed that the primary cause of acne is a rise in androgen levels. Androgen is a type of hormone and the rise of androgen levels will make the oil glands under the skin grow, causing the gland produce more oil. The excessive oil (sebum) can break down cellular walls in the pores, causing bacteria to grow and form what we called as "Pimples". (Source)
Acne can be controlled by having proper diet and skin care routine. Having suitable skin care products will help to control acne breakouts, slowly recovering the skin condition. OXY is one of my secret weapons to counter acne when I was younger, and it has been on the market for a very long time.
