The formation of acne is usually
attributed to either excessively oily or way-too-dry skin, but there’s another
culprit that may be contributing to your symptoms - your hair or more precisely
– your hair care routine.
Acne is a result of a hormonal
imbalance, which can affect the function of the sebaceous glands, whose job it
is to create sebum, (skin oil) which travels along the pores to hydrate and
protect the skin on the surface. When too much sebum is produced, it clogs the pores. A mixure of the skin oil, dirt and dead skin

fit into this? Hair can’t actually cause acne, but the products that you use, the

Here are some safe measures to
help ensure you sport not only beautiful hair but also an acne free complexion.
While keeping clean hair habits plays a big part in keeping breakouts at
bay, the most effective approach to keeping acne formation in check is by
addressing the problem at its source - the sebaceous glands - and AcnEase does
just that, no matter how mild
or severe the symptoms. Using safe and effective herbal ingredients, AcnEase
works to create a buffer between the hormones and sebaceous glands, ensuring
that only the amount of oil needed to properly hydrate the skin is produced -
no more, no less. And the best part is, it does the work for you, so if you
don’t have time to lather, rinse, repeat after a session at the gym, you can
rest assured that the condition of your acne is being treated regardless.
