How to Reduce Stress Transform Your Life and Build Confidence


Acne is a skin disease that occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. In most cases, it is accompanied by swelling of the affected area, itching, soreness, and sometimes pain. It could come as a pimple, blackheads or whiteheads and often leave scars if not treated properly.

  • bacteria
  • Sometimes, hormones
  • Sometimes hereditary/genetics
  • Stress

Acne Keeps coming back?

  • If you are experiencing puberty, then worry less; During puberty the body secretes more androgen into the system and this may result in reoccurring acne.
  • Check your diet: you should reduce meals with skim milk and carbohydrates.
  • If it persists, causes too much discomfort or sores, please contact an esthetician or dermatologist.

Please note: Acne may be caused by certain medications, especially if the drug contains testosterone, lithium, or corticosteroids. In this case, still use the treatments above to avoid those stubborn breakouts.
