The mistakes that favor the development of acne

Nobody likes to have a pimple on their face. The annoying signs of acne is not confined only to teenagers. If you do not be carefull, you do things that favor the development of acne even in older age. Experts argue that the root cause of acne is the rise in the levels of androgen, a hormone that increases as the man passes from infancy to adolescence. Acne affects men and women, but the highest levels of androgen in men make them more susceptible.

Increasing levels of androgens makes oil glands beneath the skin to grow and produce more oil. Excess sebum can break the cell walls of the pores of the skin, leading to bacterial growth. Acne usually stops after the 30th year of age, however if one is not careful he can cause the same nasty pimples with acne even at an older age.

7. Shaving with razors that do not shave well: While shaving you should be very careful. The blades of the razor should be very sharp so it doesn’t hurt the skin and allowing bacteria to enter the microscopic wounds.
