Acne and
Oily Skin Treatment

The triad of acne, oily skin and clogged pores is a form of chronic skin condition that may result in long term physical acne scarring, as well as, a hit to your confidence if left untreated. Acne is caused by bacteria that settles in the pores of the skin. It is prominent in areas such as face, chest, back or even scalp as these areas tend to produce more sebum and clogged pores.

This condition doesn’t just affect teenagers, but adults as well, and can be brought on by environmental conditions, as well as stress. Types of treatment depend on the severity of each person’s condition but a combination treatment is strongly recommended in order to deal with acne more effectively.

What causes Acne and Oily skin?

There are several factors that can cause oily skin. While some people naturally produces more oil, the excess production can also be due to stress and changing hormonal levels during puberty.

Other factors, like a humid environment (here in sunny Singapore), contraceptives and genes can cause excess sebum. Sebum and oil are responsible in lubricating our hair and skin.

Clogged pores, comedones – blackheads or whiteheads are formed due to accumulation of excessive sebum and dead skin cells within the pores. This will lead to bumpy and rough skin texture

They are more prone to bacterial infection which can result in long term redness, scars and acne marks that stays for a long time, thus, effective treatment is important in preventing the condition from worsening.
