CAUSESTREATMENTS

What causes Problematic and Blemish Skin?

A
Over Production Of Sebum
×

This happens when the sebaceous glands create excessive sebum. At the same time, the sebum produced is thicker than it would normally be, quite often due to excessive stress and hormonal imbalances.

B
Excess Keratinisation
×

This is caused by an excess of dead skin cells which sit on top of the pores and blocks them. This is normally due to the skin failing to exfoliate itself correctly. Some people try to exfoliate with a granular scrub to stop this but that is proven to instead exaggerate the problem.

C
Diet
×

We often forget that what we eat can have just as big an effect on our skin as anything else. There are foods that cause excessive breakouts through bacteria and they include sugar, dairy and unfortunately alcohol! On the positive side, some foods help our body produce the good fat we need, like seeds and fish.

D
Hormonal Imbalance
×

A hormonal imbalance can cause huge changes to anybody’s skin and is why a woman’s time of the month regularly causes an increase in spots. This is because the oil in your body is produced by the oil gland and at this time of the month the hormonal imbalance causes the gland to produce excesses of oil which is often thicker.

E
Wrong Products
×

What we put on our skin is also crucial as the wrong product does more damage than we actually think. For example, a large number of products brought from high street shops actually over exfoliate and so remove the natural skin protection we all have. This then means that the skin is more susceptible to breakouts.
