Éliminer l’acné, naturellement !

Eliminate acne, naturally!

We all dream of smooth, clear and radiant skin... Don't we? However, according to the Canadian Acne and Rosacea Society , 85% of young people aged 12 to 24 are affected by this problem. Contrary to what one might believe, acne is not only an adolescent problem: 5 million Canadians are affected, including one in five adult women! We explain to you where acne comes from, how to treat it naturally and what actions to adopt now to finally display healthy skin.

Where does acne come from?

Acne appears in the form of red spots, blackheads, whiteheads or even small cysts. They can appear on the face, of course, but also on the back, torso or even the scalp.

Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands produce excess sebum. Sebum is a substance secreted naturally and which, in normal quantities, contributes to the protection and hydration of the skin. However, when the glands produce too much sebum, it ends up blocking pores and allowing bacteria to multiply. These bacteria then lead to inflammation, which in turn causes the appearance of acne.

In adolescents, it is generally hormones that cause overproduction of sebum and the development of acne. In adults, hormones are also involved, which explains why women are most affected by this problem. Indeed, a woman constantly experiences hormonal fluctuations during her menstrual cycle, but also during pregnancy or menopause.

Certain medications can also cause the appearance of acne, as well as excessive or inappropriate skin cleansing, sweating or even the use of cosmetics containing oil!

Did you know ?
In summer, our skin often seems more beautiful and spots disappear! Indeed, the sun tends to dry out imperfections. However, UV rays are responsible for thickening of the epidermis, which can lead to poor evacuation of sebum. Result: sebum accumulates deep down and, ultimately, pimples often end up blooming once summer is over.

How to treat acne naturally?
