acne

Why do we break out?

Hi,
How are you? Acne usually occurs when pores on the surface of the skin become clogged with bacteria, dirt and cells. Hormone changes related to puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, OCP and stress as well as medication side effect, high levels of humidity and sweating may be responsible. Try not to squeeze or scratch it to prevent scarring. Regular washing of the face, eating healthy, and drinking plenty of fluids may help.  Take care and do keep us posted.
