Preface: types of acne-prone skin
Acne can manifest itself in three stages:
Phase 1: Involves the overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands which causes that tiring shiny halo.
Phase 2: In this phase, acne-prone skin develops a common nightmare for manynwomen, “blackheads” or comedones. In this situation the sebum clogs the pores generating a kind of plug that favors the formation of blackheads and whiteheads.
Phase 3: The most severe. Caused by a bacterium called Propionibacterium acnes, naturally present on the epidermis, but in the case of excess sebum generates inflammation, favoring the appearance not only of comedones, but also pimples with pus.
