Blackheads occur when excess oil becomes trapped in pores, solidifies and oxidises, producing the black colour associated with blackheads.
Whiteheads (typically “spots” or “pimples”) occur when pores are blocked with oil or impurities, which then become infected with bacteria that causes inflammation.
Blackheads and whiteheads do heal which is why it is important not to pick the skin, however tempting it might be. Acne occurs as a result of the follicle (pore) wall rupturing, which leads to inflammation and an outbreak of blemishes.
Cosmetics - can block pores, such as certain foundations and moisturisers.
Excess oil - is often caused by hormonal imbalance, invariably triggered by puberty and pregnancy.
Overloading your body with toxins - such as caffeine, alcohol and tobacco causes blemishes, as does eating an unhealthy diet which does not contain essential nutrients.
Stress and anxiety - can increase hormone production, which in turn increases oil (sebum) production.
Lack of fresh air, lack of sunshine and not enough sleep or exercise - also contribute to the occurrence of acne and blemishes.
Picking Spots – can rupture follicle walls, which causes inflammation and an outbreak of whiteheads, leading to acne.
