Acne


Acne usually starts during puberty, and can vary in severity from a few spots on the face, neck and


chest to more severe cases that can lead to scarring. For most people, the condition tends to disappear by the early 20s, however, for others it can persist into the early 30s.


The condition occurs when hair follicles in the skin become blocked by sebum (skin grease) and dead skin cells, leading to infection. Spots are caused by bacteria contaminating the infected follicle, triggering inflammation.


Treatment depends on the severity of the condition, which can be diagnosed by your GP. Over the counter gels and creams containing benzoyl peroxide can help unblock pores and kill infection. Other treatments containing anti-biotics can also kill the infection-causing bacteria, or in severe cases antibiotic tablets can be taken orally.


While you can’t prevent acne from occurring, a simple skincare regime that avoids soap and harsh cleansers can help minimise symptoms. Oil-free products can also help you avoid more blocked follicles.
