Acne is a prevalent skin condition characterized by the emergence of unsightly blemishes, including pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads, commonly found on the face and various parts of the body.
Acne develops when pores, hair follicles, and oil glands become obstructed due to the accumulation of dead skin cells and excess oil. This condition can be triggered by a variety of factors, such as hormonal fluctuations, genetic predisposition, exposure to environmental elements, and the use of unsuitable skincare products. Once pores become obstructed, inflammation and irritation can occur, resulting in the formation of different types of blemishes.
Numerous factors, including hormonal fluctuations, stress, cosmetics, lifestyle choices such as inadequate sleep and suboptimal hygiene practices, exposure to pollutants, and excessive perspiration, can contribute to the onset and exacerbation of acne.
Recent research conducted in Kenya by the International Society of Dermatology has revealed a notably high prevalence of acne in the country ranging from 0.1% to 8.9%, with Western Kenya recording a rate of 11.2%.
This underlines the significance of addressing the acne issue in the region, and CeraVe’s commitment to offering a reliable solution to those affected.
