Skin Care Tip Of The Week: Lay off the Facial Scrubs

Acne is caused when your pores become blocked due to the presence of oil. When the oil gets in your pores, bacteria begins to grow there. Your body detects the bacteria and in defense, attacks the bacteria, which results in inflammation. It is common for people with acne to want to scrub their skin or use harsh products, but don’t!  It often makes acne worse. In order to improve your acne, you need to approach it with gentle hands and gentle products.
