WHAT IS ACNE? And WHY MY FACE? 

Skin aint Skinnin..

So basically what had happened was...

You or your child started experiencing acne and your first thought is..

maybe its inherited  BUT that is not always the case or.. you think you or they are a "dirty" person but that is definitely not the case and honestly it doesn't really matter , what you are going to do is make the commitment and promise to yourself.. because everyone deserve to feel confident and beautiful no matter who they are.. and lets be real here acne is UNCOMFORTABLE.. So lets learn about it and let us help teach you how to do something about it.

SO to explain acne as simple as possible 

your pores like to shed dead skin cells MUCH faster than normal - so basically a person who does not have acne will lose  ONE LAYER of dead skin cells per day inside one pore.. But an acne prone person will lose up to FIVE LAYERS of dead skin cells in that one pore per day. 

On our skin we have naturally occurring oils and other environmental factors that come in contact with our skin ( Remember this )

 

SO

When this happens it causes a build up and forms a Microcomedone "Micro - coh-meh -dones"  .. and this is where the acne lesions begin.

 

So now you have this little Microcomedone formed... 

The oil we mentioned earlier on skin is produced in our glands which are called the sebaceous glands this helps keep our skin hydrated and protected.

NOW Sometimes, these oil glands can ALSO produce too much oil, go figure right... and when combined with those extra five dead skin cells, it forms a plug that blocks the hair follicle.


This blockage creates a perfect environment for certain bacteria called Propionibacterium "prow·pee·aa·nuh·bak·tee·ree·uhm" acnes to grow. These bacteria thrive in the clogged follicles and trigger an immune response by our body, inflaming blood vessels leading to redness. This inflammatory process exacerbates the development of acne lesions, causing redness, swelling, and discomfort.

As a result of this inflammation, the follicle wall swells up, and a small red bump called a "pimple" forms on the skin's surface. If the inflammation goes deeper into the skin, it can form larger, more painful bumps called nodules or cysts.


There are several factors that can contribute to the development of acne, including hormone fluctuations, especially during puberty, which cause increased oil production and skin cell turnover. Other factors like certain medications, stress, diet, and as mentioned before even genetics can also play a role.

Please understand that acne isn't caused by poor hygiene or eating oily foods. While keeping the skin clean and following a healthy diet can help prevent breakouts, acne is primarily a result of hormonal and genetic factors interacting with our skin's natural processes.

Understanding the pathophysiology of acne is vital for devising effective treatment strategies, as it allows for targeted interventions aimed at each step of this complex process. Fortunately, there are various treatments available here at Artless available and our ACNE BOOT CAMP will help you achieve those results we also have treatments that can help manage acne, such as topical skincare products, supplements, chemical peels, and laser therapies. These treatments aim to unclog the follicles, reduce inflammation, and control the bacteria's growth, providing relief and improving the appearance of acne.

These treatments are also going to be beneficial and discounted for those who complete the acne Boot Camp with Artless.

HOW LONG IS THE CLEARING PROCESS? 

Because it takes up to 90 days for acne to form, you may still have 90 days of acne that will surface. Our acne products and protocol will keep the new acne from forming that would surface 90 days from now. In most cases, the Face Reality Skincare Program will have your acne under control in about 3 to 6 months, depending on your type of acne. Some types of acne take longer to clear. Your Acne Expert will customize a home care routine that takes at least 5 things into consideration: acne type, skin type, skin color, skin sensitivity and environment. The biggest part of the clearing process is your commitment to applying your home care routine as instructed and following recommended lifestyle where possible.

YOUR COMMITMENT THROUGH THE CLEARING PROCESS 

  1. Use your customized routine of home care products exactly as directed

  2. Receive treatments and/or check-in with your Acne Expert every 2 weeks

  3. Follow any recommended adjustments to your home care routine as directed

  4. Follow lifestyle recommendations where possible, including diet, stress management, and pore-clogging ingredients in skin, hair, and cosmetic products.  

 

Your progress will be closely monitored by your Acne Expert who will make sure you have the best home care routine for your skin and will make adjustments, if necessary, to get your skin healthy and clear in the fastest way possible.
