anywhere else on the body and contains many sebaceous glands situated just
below the surface of the skin. Sebaceous glands continuously produce and
secrete skin oil (sebum) through the openings (pores) in the skin. When too
much sebum is produced, pores and hair follicles become clogged and together
with dirt and bacteria, you have a recipe for acne.
Factors that over stimulate sebaceous
glands may be different including internal imbalance or hormonal fluctuations
due to puberty or heavy exercise, which induces extra male
hormones called androgens and affects both males and females.

The most effective way to treat acne is
from the inside out by preventing it from coming again and to treat the current
symptoms. With AcnEase, users show
visible improvement after 6 -8 weeks. Some individuals with chronic and
severe back acne may have to use AcnEase for up to three months – it doesn’t
start over night, so won’t go away overnight – however, achieving the amazing
results will be well worth the wait.
addition to AcnEase, we teach you how to clean and moisturize acne prone skin
without chemicals. Wash the affected area
gently with a mild cleanser and let the skin dry. A non-harsh disinfectant such
as witch hazel can also be used sparingly and on a small surface. Do not rub it
over the entire back. You can apply a moisturizer if needed.
