Knowing Your Enemy- What is Acne?

Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles get clogged with oil and dead skin cells, and bacteria makes a home out of it. Dead skin cells are supposed to surface and flake off from your pores, but too much oil causes them to stick together abnormally- forming skin debris and clogging your pores. Acne is a persistent condition that causes emotional distress and possible skin scarring. 



What are the types of Acne?


Whiteheads: Comedones that stay closed at the surface of the skin. This happens when oil and skin cells prevent a clogged hair follicle from opening.

Blackheads: Comedones that are open at the surface of the skin. They are filled with excess oil and dead skin cells.

Papules: Comedones that become inflamed, forming small red or pink bumps on the skin. Might be sensitive to the touch.

Pustules: Comedones that become inflamed, forming bumps with a red ring around and filled with white or yellow pus.

Nodules: Larger, tender pustules lodged deep within the skin. Feels firm to the touch.



What causes Acne?


1. Stress & Irregular Sleep Schedule

It's not called beauty sleep for nothing! Your skin repairs itself while you sleep. Having an irregular sleep cycle triggers your stress hormones and stimulates your oil glands. The higher your levels of stress, the higher the cortisol levels in your body, and the more active the sebaceous glands(responsible for producing oil) in your skin. Oil traps dirt and skin cells, resulting in plugged follicles- favourable condition for bacteria growth and acne.


2. Hormonal Imbalance

This type of acne often appears on your chin/ jaws and are usually the result of your hormones being off balance during puberty/ menstrual cycle.


3. Poor Hygiene

Do you change your pillowcases and mattresses regularly? Do you clean your phone screens and make up brushes? Well you should. Bacteria can accumulate in these places and acne can find its way to you. 


4. Washing your face excessively

Yup, you read that right. Overwashing and overexfoliating your skin removes too much natural oils and causes your skin to produce more oil instead.


5. Greasy Cosmetics & Hair Products

If you have oily skin, you totally should be avoiding oil-based skin care, make up and hair styling products which clog your pores. Noncomedogenic products are the way to go!


6. Sun Exposure

Being in Singapore, we are trapped in a sunny, hot environment. Being constantly exposed to sunlight dries out your skin, leading to excess oil production. (Use an oil-free sunscreen!) You find yourself sweating everyday. And sweaty skin contains bacteria that can breed acne. A mixture of oil, sweat and make up is a breeding ground for acne. Don't put off washing your face after a long day out or after a work out.


7. Dehydrated Skin

Are you drinking enough water? Your skin needs its fluids. Dehydrated skin due to a humid environment or lack of intake of water causes your body to overproduce oil!


Do adults get acne too?

The answer is yes unfortunately. Adult acne usually happens on the lower half of the face and is rooted deeper. Adulting isn't easy. You get tonnes of deadlines, KPIs to meet and all that stress isn't healthy for you. When you’re stressed, your adrenal gland releases cortisol which sends your oil glands into overdrive. Another common cause of adult acne is hormonal fluctuations. Beyond its role as a male sex hormone, testosterone plays a major role in regulating your skin’s oil levels. Interesting fact: Both men and women produce testosterone. Hormonal fluctuations of the testosterone while you age increases sebum production. More testosterone = More oil= Acne Outbreaks


How Should I Handle Acne?

Rule Number 1: Do NOT Squeeze Your Acne. We repeat, Do NOT. Squeezing your pimples push the bacteria deeper into your skin, congesting your pores even more! It triggers inflammation, causing your acne area to swell and be more noticeable. And if your pimple contains infected pus, popping it can cause the bacteria to spread and affect other pores and hair follicles, creating a bigger acne outbreak. Worst of all, squeezing your pimples may cause scabbing, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or tissue loss that results in pitted acne scars. The more damage done to your skin, the higher your chances of suffering tissue loss. 

Rule Number 2: Do Not Over-Exfoliate or Use Harsh Cleansers/ Scrubs.

Rule Number 3: Use Noncomedogenic Skin Care Products instead.

Rule Number 4: Hydrate Yourself & Limit Sun Exposure. Don't forget to use sunscreen!

Rule Number 5: Maintain your Personal Hygiene. Clean your make up products and phone screen regularly to prevent buildup of bacteria.


Acne Fighting Ingredients You Should Look For in Acne Products/ Treatments

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid is a potent ingredient commonly used to treat acne. It is a beta hydroxy acid derived from willow bark. Salicylic acid has oil-soluble properties which allow it to penetrate into the pores of the skin and break down connections between the skin cells to unclog the skin. Having oil-soluble properties allow the ingredient to penetrate the skin deeper than water-soluble ingredients. It helps to dissolve dead skin cells, clear out excess oils from the skin and acts as an astringent to minimize the appearance of pores, blemishes and hyperpigmentation.

Benzoyl Peroxide

Benzolyl Peroxide's main function is to kill acne-causing bacteria. It works particularly well for inflammatory acne. 

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid well known for its skin exfoliating properties. Similar to Salicylic acid, it targets the cause of loosening your dead skin cells from each other. It eliminates the buildup of oils and dead skin cells to reduce occurence of acne breakouts. Additionally, glycolic acid also has a moisturising effect, which prevents your skin from getting too dried out by other ingredients and overproducing oil in compensation. It also allows for better absorption of thsese other acne treatment ingredients.


Retinoid is effective for acne and congested skin. It unclogs pores, treats oil production and combats bacteria that causes acne. It balances oil glands and promotes quick healing of pimples that do develop. It builds collagen to thicken and increase the structural strength of treated skin.


Why Should I Seek Professional Help?

Almost everyone is plaqued by acne, even those who seem to have flawless skin. Acne affects people from all walks of life and ages. Acne comes in several forms and it is important that you properly identify your condition and use the right treatment to improve your condition, not worsen it. You need a skincare routine that complements your treatments as well, and it is best for a professional skin consultant to help you package these together for the most effective and personalised solution. Even if you do not currently have acne, prevention is better than cure.
