Understanding the origins of acne

Acne affects most adolescents. It is a dermatological condition which can present in two forms:

A moderate form;
A severe form.

This phenomenon manifests itself around the age of 17 and can last up to 30 years in people with black to dark skin. Besides adolescents, acne also affects adults. It is due to inflammation of the pilosebaceous follicle and develops in three stages:

Overproduction of sebum;
Formation of retentional lesions;
Proliferation of the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria.

Pimples and lesions appear particularly on the back, face, chest and neck. Some lesions can leave indelible scars. As black to dark skin is particularly reactive and sensitive, a simple pimple can lead to the appearance of hyperpigmentation spots. Acne can be caused by many factors:

Sun exposure ;
Friction due to clothing;
Use of occlusive or oily cosmetics;
Taking hormonal medications;

Often, this phenomenon is caused by hormonal imbalance. In case of persistent acne, consult your gynecologist to carry out a hormonal assessment.

In addition to having antifungal and antibacterial properties, goat's milk soap has a particularly fine texture that is easily absorbed by the skin. You can use it daily in the morning and evening. This soap is perfectly suited to reactive, sensitive and allergic skin. Rich in phosphorus, calcium, potash, fatty acids and magnesium, it allows:

To hydrate and soften your skin;
To rebalance its pH.

Here are some tips for use:
After having moistened it, rub it between the palms of your hands until you obtain a light foam;
Apply it to your face using circular movements to obtain a creamy mask.

For optimal effectiveness, leave on for a few minutes before rinsing. To dry, simply tap your face gently to absorb the water.
