With the Eminence skin care, the first pimples appear on the face, on the back , on the chest or on the shoulders – skin problems that many teenagers are familiar with.
About 85 percent of all adolescents are affected by the hormonal acne (acne vulgaris).
Among other things, the increased release of male sex hormones (androgens) – both in boys and girls – is responsible for impure skin during puberty . The changes in the hormone balance start around the age of 11 and have an effect on the mind, body and also on the skin:
- Sweat and sebaceous glands work at full speed; The so-called scent glands (apocrine sweat glands) do not even begin their work until puberty.
- Hair and skin become greasier, the face shines .
- The pores clog up more easily, blackheads develop and bacteria have an easy time.
- Especially in the T-zone, ie on the forehead, nose and chin, pimples can come to light.
Blackheads, pimples and acne – what is what?
They develop when the sebaceous glands clog and excess fat can not drain away. This usually happens as soon as sebum, skin cells and dirt on the skin stick together and block the pore outlet.
Stagnant sebum in the pore canal provides an excellent breeding ground for harmful bacteria. They set inflammatory processes in motion, the skin turns red and swells – a pimple blooms.
While harmless pimples usually disappear as quickly as they come, acne is an inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles. The pimples are then very persistent and can also leave scars depending on severity. In this case, help from the dermatologist is required.
