If you’re suffering from acne, you might feel like you’re the only person in the world dealing with this annoying, self-esteem-destroying skin condition - but you’re not.  

According to the NHS, approximately 95% of people aged 11-30 experience acne to a certain extent. It’s a super-common skin concern and ranges from mild to severe.  

You might just get the odd few whiteheads, or a smattering of annoying hard-to-rid blackheads, or you may find you’re dealing with angry, red, painful spots that feel almost like cysts. However bad your skin is though, there’s an acne skincare routine to tackle your situation head on.

In this article, we’ll explore how a personalised acne skincare routine could be the secret to setting your skin free of annoying acne.

Understanding Acne

Acne isn’t just a one-size-fits-all problem. In fact, there are four common types of acne that could rear their ugly heads and set your skin in turmoil. They are -

  1. Whiteheads – caused by a build-up of sebum in the skin’s pores
  2. Blackheads – if a hair follicle becomes clogged up with dirt and debris a blackhead can form
  3. Cystic acne – the biggest, most painful, and deepest form of acne. Often caused by a hormonal imbalance. Pustules can turn into cystic acne if untreated
  4. Pustules – can look like enlarged whiteheads but are bigger and more inflamed

What Causes Acne?

Acne is mainly caused when an excess of sebum is produced in the skin. On its own, this isn’t a problem as sebum is produced by sebaceous glands to help keep your skin and hair nicely moisturised.  

The issue occurs when too much sebum is produced and then mixes with bits of dead skin to clog up your hair follicles. Add bacteria that lives on the skin into the melting pot, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for everything you don’t want: acne, inflamed skin, and a case of low self-esteem thanks to a skin flare up.

Acne and Emotions

People who don’t experience acne can never understand the emotional toll acne can have. Blemish-free skin is a blessing and one that should be cherished – as (bad news) you might not always have it. Acne can harm a person’s self-image, confidence, and could lead to low mood and self-esteem.  

If you look in the mirror and you’re not happy with the face staring back at you, you might find yourself wanting to hide, avoiding social interaction, stopping doing things that actually – deep down – you'd really love to be doing. When this happens, acne can even lead to depression and anxiety.

Effective Acne Management

Whether it’s acnes face cream, acne laser treatment, or trying out an acne-friendly diet, the importance of finding the right acne skincare routine that works for you is paramount.
