LA ROCHE POSAY IS MANAGING ACNE WITH SENSITIVE SKIN

Zits, spots, pimples… call them what you may; acne affects most teens and a good chunk of the adult population too.

With a plethora of misinformed home remedies circulating online (lemon juice and toothpaste mask anyone?) and an abundance of harsh products on the market, treating acne can be especially painful for those with sensitive skin. To expose the true secret to clearer skin with minimal discomfort we’re uncovering just how acne occurs and a exploring a dermatological acne regime, formulated for sensitive skin.

The Biology Behind the Blemish

Stage 1: The Build Up
Hormonal changes cause a build-up of sebum. Excess sebum and cells clog the pores, causing blackheads and whiteheads.

Stage 2: The Breakout
A bacterium called P. Acnes multiplies in airless environments like blocked pores. This causes inflammation, raised red spots, postules, hard lesions and cysts.

The Good News is…
With the right treatment, you can short-circuit any of the two stages of acne. For best results, consult your pharmacist for a dermatological skin care range that’s made for sensitive skin. La Roche-Posay is a sensitive skincare brand, recommended by 25,000 dermatologists worldwide.
