What is happening in the skin when congestion and breakouts appear?
Breakouts can occur due to a few different areas of dysfunction within the skin.
Firstly, those who suffer from breakouts typically experience an excessive build-up of dead skin cells (known as retention hyperkeratosis). These skin cells can then accumulate within the pore (or hair follicle) in which sebum (oil) is secreted into.
In normal situations the sebum flows freely out of the pore and onto the skin to lubricate and protect. However, some people who experience breakouts may also have an excess production of sebum or even a stickier sebum, which means that it doesn’t flow as freely out of the pore.
The sebum (or sticker sebum) then combines with the build-up of dead skin cells, to produce a plug within the pore. Once the plug has been formed, it cuts off the oxygen supply to the pore. This means that bacteria (particular p. acnes) can rapidly multiply.
If the bacteria within the blocked pore continue to multiply we can see redness, swelling and inflammation as the congested pores progress into inflamed breakouts.
