Life is stressful, but skin care shouldn’t be. Whether you’re suffering from a bout of pubescent acne, you can’t seem to get your maskne under control or you’re getting the far too occasional stress breakout, it can feel so relieving to find products best suited to treat your skin.
“Acne is a genetic condition. There are a few different things that come together to cause someone to develop acne,” Dr. Elyse Love, a New York City-based board-certified dermatologist explains. “At one level there’s a little abnormality at the level of the follicle where the cells get clogged. At the second level, there’s inflammation at the level of the follicle, which can be worsened by the bacteria p. acne. Then, we also know that hormonal changes can have an influence, expressed by the amount of sebum our follicles make.”
