Acne occurs when steroids (androgens) stimulate the sebaceous glands within the skin’s hair follicles. These glands then secrete an oily substance called sebum. When sebum, bacteria, pus and dead skin cells build up on your skin, the pores become blocked, creating acne.
Start with the regimen of washing the face with antibacterial liquid soap followed by using witch hazel as an astringent. This will kill the bacteria that caused it and you will not have to resort to potentially dangerous antibiotics. It works beautifully and you will never have to suffer with it again if you keep the regimen of daily facial hygiene.
