Imperfections: all our tips to avoid them!
All about imperfections
How do imperfections form?
Pimples, blackheads, dilated pores, shininess, rashes… These imperfections can appear at any age, on oily skins, as well as dry skins, mixed or sensitive. They are provoked by an overproduction of sebum, which thickens the skin and slows down cellular renewal. Dead cells and sebum accumulate and block the skin pores encouraging the development of bacteria P. acnes (plural for acne) and the appearance of comedowns (blackheads) and pimples.
What makes them appear
Imperfections are usually caused by hormonal imbalance (puberty, the birth control, stress) or unhealthy lifestyle (lack of sleep, inadequate beauty routine, unbalanced diet), which stimulate hormonal production. Caution in the sun, if we get the impression that it enhances the quality of skin, it’s only temporary, imperfections will come back even more so.
