What Are The Different Types Of Acne?

What Causes Acne?

Acne, the pesky troublemaker that likes to wreak havoc on our skin, has a few notorious culprits behind its appearance. Excessive oil production, often due to hormonal fluctuations, can clog pores and create a breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria. Additionally, dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface, further contributing to blockages. Certain factors like genetics, environmental pollutants etc. can exacerbate the situation.

What Are The Different Types Of Acne?

  • Whiteheads: Closed comedones that appear as small white or flesh-coloured bumps on the skin's surface.
  • Blackheads: Open comedones that have a dark appearance due to oxidation of sebum and dead skin cells.
  • Papules: Inflamed, red bumps without a visible center or pus.
  • Pustules: Similar to papules but with a visible center filled with pus.
  • Nodules: Large, solid, painful bumps that form beneath the surface of the skin.
  • Cysts: Deep, painful, pus-filled lesions that are prone to scarring.
  • Pimples: Commonly used as a general term for different types of acne lesions, including papules, pustules, and inflamed comedones.

Steps To Prevent Acne

1. Cleanser

Simple Skincare's cleanser is more than a mere purifier—it is a guardian against future breakouts. Yes, we are talking about our 100% soap-free, Purifying Gel Face Wash with Thyme & Witch Hazel. This one is a must-have in your skincare routine and is said to be one of the best face wash, especially for acne. The gel-based formula of this one fights skin congestion like a pro and soothes your skin, whilst preventing any sort of irritation.

If you think when acne surprises you, it’s best to avoid moisturisers then think again. Moisturisers help in balancing the oil’s production. The best practise is to stick to an oil-free formula. We recommend our Ultra-Light Liquid Moisturiser with Thyme & Witch Hazel.

This remarkable product is specifically designed to address acne-prone skin while providing essential hydration. With its lightweight, formula, it won't block your pores or contribute to acne. Infused with ingredients like chamomile, and witch hazel, this moisturiser works tirelessly to regulate oil production, calm inflammation, and promote a healthy skin barrier. Also, since the formula has no fragrance, this one avoids any sort of skin irritation.

Tips To Prevent Acne

  • Cleanse Your Skin: Regularly wash your face twice a day with the best face wash to remove dirt, oil, and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils. You can also use it after working out to keep your skin fresh and clean.
  • Avoid Touching Your Face: Minimise the transfer of bacteria and dirt to your face by refraining from touching it with your hands.
  • Choose Kind Skincare Products: Opt for skincare products that are specially formulated to not clog pores, reducing the risk of acne breakouts. Furthermore, choose gentle exfoliators and use them once or twice a week.
  • Protect Your Skin From The Sun: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher daily. This helps protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
  • Follow A Healthy Diet: Maintain a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Limit your intake of processed foods and sugary snacks, as these can potentially contribute to acne.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink an adequate amount of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated. Proper hydration can support healthy skin function.
  • Manage Stress Levels: Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as exercise, meditation, or engaging in activities you enjoy, to avoid acne.
  • Avoid Excessive Scrubbing: Be gentle with your skin and avoid excessive scrubbing or harsh exfoliation, as it can irritate the skin and worsen acne. Use gentle, kind products.
