Life Cycle of A Pimple
For the most part, Pimples don’t just pop out of nowhere! They can start forming weeks (sometimes months) before you see a red bump errupt on your skin. It doesnt happen when you use a skincare product for 2-3 days.
Keep in mind, this general guide and NOT all pimples take this EXACT course. Sometimes a papule doesn’t turn into a pustule because maybe you use a certain product (like acne spot treatment / serum / toners) that help to calm the inflammation and dissolve skin cells like salicylic acid which helps kill bacteria.
What causes acne?
There are a number of factors that can contribute to the development and worsening of acne, but there are only 4 biological causes:
* Increase Oil Production
✅ Solution: Balance hormones
* A build up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin
✅ Solution: Exfoliate / increase cell turnover (Retinol/AHA/BHA those can be found in Starter Kit & Clear Bomb)
* P. acnes bacteria
* Inflammation / Immune response to bacteria
