comedones

What IS IT?

Comedonesis a skin condition which is caused by skin pores being clogged with a mixture of sebum and dead skin cells. Blackheads, which are a form of comedone, occur when there is an overproduction of sebum in the pores. This trapped sebum gets into contact with air, which causes it to oxidize, resulting in inflammation which gives it a black appearance. Whiteheads, on the other hand, are closed comedones,also due to sebum build-up which occurs just below the surface of the skin. The skinacts as a barrier preventing the sebum from coming to the surface and being excreted, which can resultin a bumpy appearance.

Over-exfoliation results in your skin becoming dry, which causes skin to compensate for the dryness andexcess sebum is secreted, which will in return clog your pores and cause comedones. Frustratingly, a lack of exfoliation can also cause this condition so it is imperative to try and take a balanced approach to facial skin care.Genetics is a major factor in the production of sebum with the hormone androgen stimulating over-activity of the sebum glands.
