Ladies, I’m joined in my bathroom by Shabir Daya, the wonderful pharmacist and co-founder of https://www.victoriahealth.com. We discuss all things spots – what causes them and the best solutions!

What is acne?

Inflammatory
Spots come from the inflammation of the sebaceous gland and the follicle. Inflammation causes an increase in cell turnover which blocks the follicle preventing sebum and bacteria from emptying onto the skins surface. The body then sends white blood cells to destroy the thriving bacteria resulting in inflammation and pain.

Non Inflammatory
White heads come when the skin is formed but the sebum remains inside the follicle.
Black heads occur when the follicle isn’t fully formed and the sebum oxidises and becomes black.

What Causes acne ?

Hormonal imbalance or insufficiency
Inflammation arises as a result of excess testosterone especially during your teenage years. In adulthood this be the case when there is a female hormonal insufficiency whether cyclically or during menopause.

Stress
Production of inflammatory cortisol, causes adrenals to over produce testosterone.

Excess sugar
Acne has also been labelled skin diabetes because a diet high refined sugars causes constant insulin production. Insulin may trigger inflammatory compounds that cause excess oil production.

Gluten
Gluten intolerance may contribute to this. Gluten can make your gut more permeable allowing certain proteins into the bloodstream that would normally be excluded, this causes inflammation leading to acne.

Genetics
Research shows that it could be related with your genetics after all as acne does tend to run in families.
