June Is Acne Awareness Month

Acne Awareness Month At Skin Clinic At Urban Spa In Bishop's Stortford

Acne Awareness Month

June is Acne Awareness Month so our skincare experts explain all there is to know about acne and the best acne treatments at Skin Clinic at Urban Spa & Beauty Salon in Hertfordshire.

Although acne is common amongst teenagers, it also affects a lot of women throughout their lives. This is due to fluctuations in hormones during the menstrual cycle or due to pregnancy. Stress, smoking and a high sugar diet have also been linked to cause acne. A common myth about acne is that it is caused by dirty skin when in reality it is a combination of many different factors such as those we just mentioned!

By having a month dedicated to acne awareness, we can talk openly about spots and pimples and how they affect us and what we can do about it. We understand that dealing with acne can be difficult as it can often affect your self esteem.

At Skin Clinic at Urban Spa in Bishop's Stortford, we know you're beautiful just the way you are. However, we are also here to help you achieve happy, healthy skin so that you can look and feel your best.

What Is Acne?

There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding acne. A common belief is that unclean skin and wearing makeup causes acne but this is not entirely true. Acne is caused due to a variety of reasons, the most common being clogged pores and hair follicles that result in red spots or pimples.

At Skin Clinic at Urban Spa, our skincare experts can assess your skin during a consultation and map out the causes of your skin problems so that we can best help you deal with and treat them.

Inflammatory Acne & Non-Inflammatory Acne

There are two types of acne which are inflammatory acne and non-inflammatory acne.

Inflammatory acne looks like swollen, red spots that can often be painful. Cystic acne is a type of inflammatory acne and these types of spots are caused by sebum, bacteria and dead skin cells being trapped in the skin's pores.

Non-inflammatory acne tends to be less noticeable than inflammatory acne as they are not red or swollen. Types of non-inflammatory acne include whiteheads and blackheads. Whiteheads are the result of pores that are clogged up and closed, while blackheads are the result of pores that are clogged up and open.

At our Bishop's Stortford skin clinic, we have specialised treatments for all types of acne to help restore and repair your skin's issues.
