What is Keratinisation? It’s a build up of dead skin cells, which makes your skin look thick and dull. When the skin is not exfoliating itself correctly, a build up of dead skin cells occurs and your pores ducts become blocked.
Light exfoliation is the solution. Let us say that again… Light exfoliation. Don’t be tempted to reach for a granular scrub because this will aggravate your skin. Instead pick up some Beta Hydroxy Acid, which will dissolve the build up in the pore, rather than just acting on the surface bacteria.
P acne bacteria causes an infection in the pore, resulting in a pustule. Bacteria on our skin is necessary, bacteria in the wrong places on our skin causes inflammation and infection.
To combat this problem you need to sterilise your skin a professional peel, using ingredients such as; lactic acid, tea tree and colostrum which will help to kill the bacteria and reduce any inflammation.
