The Best Aspect Skincare Products for Acne

The Aspect range of cosmeceuticals has been expertly engineered with cutting edge, optically pure actives from medical science and nature to calm inflammation and treat all types of acne and congestion. But before we get to all the options of acne fighting products in the Aspect range, let's take a look at what exactly is acne and the reasons we get it.

What is acne?

Acne is an inflammation of the hair follicle. An overproduction of oil and a build-up of bacteria are contributing factors when it comes to the formation of acne. Areas of the skin with the largest number of functional oil glands, such as the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders, are often affected.

Why do we get acne?

Acne occurs when your skin's pores become blocked with oil, dead skin or bacteria. They can also occur due to an infection of the hair follicle and sebaceous gland. There are many factors that contribute to Acne, such as hormones, poor skin hygiene, cosmetics, pollution, diet and lifestyle. Some of these factors are hard to control and need internal and external help.
