Are you concerned about the blemishes on your skin? Blemishes typically manifest in the form of acne, blackheads, pimples and dark spots. Sebum is the excess oil produced by the sebaceous glands, so an oversecretion of sebum will clog the pores and cause these blemishes to surface. When your skin becomes too oily, bacteria and dead skin cells get trapped easily in the pores, resulting in an increased risk of acne breakouts.
When blemish-prone skin is left untreated, the acne may scar and transform into dark spots over time. If you have acne-prone skin, refrain from picking or squeezing the zits because this often leads to semi-permanent scarring. Be careful not to share make-up products or applicators with anyone to avoid the transfer of bacteria and dead skin cells onto your skin.
The best way to prevent acne is to use specific skincare and make-up products for acne-prone skin. You should also stay away from non-comedogenic products that can trigger breakouts or clog the pores.
