What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that can show up as reddened bumps on the affected area. When skin pores are blocked by dead skin cells, bacteria and oil, acne can occur

1.6 million

Over 1.6 million Ghanaians struggle with acne every year

What causes acne?

  • Skin glands produce oil known as sebum, to moisturize it. Pimples occur as a result of skin glands overproducing this sebum, as well as skin glands getting blocked by dead skin cells

  • The pimple can also be further infected by a bacteria that grows normally on the skin, known as Cutibacterium Acnes, leading to worsening of the pimple

  • Blockage of hair follicles and subsequent infection of the fluid by bacteria occurs with the use of heavy oil-based hair and skin products

  • Excessive sebum production can be stimulated by hormones that are produced in high amounts during puberty, pregnancy, in people taking oral contraceptive pills or steroids for bodybuilding

What can I do to prevent acne?

  • Stick to a good skincare routine

  • Clean your makeup before you go to bed

  • Avoid heavy use of oil based products on your face
