Collection: Acne Prone Skin

Acne manifests in various forms, influenced by skin type, hygiene, and dietary factors. Papules, often found in the T-zone but possible anywhere on the face, start as non-painful infections and develop into pustules once a whitehead forms. These are generally linked to excess oil and can accompany conditions like rosacea or dermatitis.

Surface acne results from poor cleansing routines, leading to dirt, pollutants, makeup, and sunscreen build-up. These acne types present as bumps with whiteheads that are easier to extract compared to deeper bumps caused by food sensitivities. Ultra processed foods and foods rich in oils and fats and sugars like dairy and gluten can trigger such bumps, initially appearing on the cheeks and spreading to the jawline and forehead.

Blackheads are prevalent on oily skin, covering areas like cheeks, forehead, and nose, and are concentrated in the T-zone for combination skin types. Dry skin rarely experiences blackheads.

Hormonal acne features large, painful nodules due to hormonal imbalances and can be worsened by specific foods, lifestyle choices, and stress. This type of acne typically affects the face, neck, chest, and back and is common across all ages.
