Frequently Asked Questions
What causes Acne?
Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become blocked with oil, dead skin, or bacteria. Each pore of your skin is the opening to a follicle. The follicle is made up of a hair and a sebaceous (oil) gland. The oil gland releases sebum (oil), which travels up the hair, out of the pore, and onto your skin.
What are the most important parts of a skincare routine?
The basic steps of a skin-care routine are a gentle cleanser, a moisturizer, and a sunscreen. You’ll need a cleanser to wash off the dirt, makeup, excess oil, dead skin cells, and environmental impurities that end up on your face naturally throughout the day. Moisturizer will help keep the skin’s protective barrier functioning properly and your skin feeling smooth and soft. And arguably the most important element, sunscreen helps prevent skin cancer as well as cosmetic sun damage.
