Acne is a very common inflammatory skin condition characterised by spots, blackheads and whiteheads. It often starts in early teens, for most people it tends to resolve by the late teens or early twenties, but it can last for longer and may develop for the first time in people in their late twenties or even the thirties
Acne causes and triggers:
- Acne bacterium lives on everyone’s skin, usually causing no problems, but in those prone to acne, the build-up of oil creates an ideal environment in which these bacteria can multiply.
- Hormonal changes during puberty, menstrual periods and pregnancy.
- Greasy or oily cosmetics
I'd absolutely be lost without the Elave Rejuvenating Night Treatment, I've very oily skin and leave this in the shower and use it twice a week. It's the ONLY thing that drys my oils up on my face and stops me from getting spots, which I suffered badly with in the past. I use to go for glycolic facials, this is the same but less of an expense - Nicole
