DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT ACNE?
Sebum is a naturally occurring substance that is produced by the sebaceous organs, which are found in the skin and mucus layers of the mammals. The essential function of sebum is to lubricate, moisturize and protect skin and hair.
When sebum is overproduced, it leads to clogged pores and overgrowth of skin based bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes) which causes acne. Stress is one of the major factors for the overproduction of sebum and hence acne occurs.
Relaxation techniques like meditation and yoga can help to cure acne as they help in relieving stress and anxiety which in turn controls the sebum production in the skin.
