Almost all of us have experienced a blemish or two in our lives. Whether it is a small pimple to pops up from time to time or it is more chronic, understanding the underlining causes can provide solutions moving forward. 

Step 1: It all starts with the pilo-sebaceous gland which is home to the hair follicle as well as the oil-producing sebaceous gland. 

HEALTHY SKIN TIP: Use Deep & Clear Cleanser daily.

Step 2: Normally the gland releases oil and the hair follicle grows from the same opening. With excessive oil production or in-grown hairs, the gland becomes clogged. 

HEALHTY SKIN TIP: Sleep-In Blemish Banisher Overnight Mask.

Step 3: As the sebum from the gland and keratin from the old skin bind, the occlusion causes bacteria to proliferate and the pimple becomes more visible. 

HEALTHY SKIN TIP: Peel the pimple with Blemish Banisher Gel and Blemish Banisher Booster.

Step 4: The bacteria continue to grow and cause inflammation, redness and discomfort. There is more and more evidence that inflammation plays a role in certain types of acne as early as step 1 early stages of acne. 

HEALTHY SKIN TIP: Reduce inflammation and redness with VITal B Hydrogel & Healing Powers Sleep In Mask.
