Acne-prone skin
A chronic inflammatory skin type which affects the pilosebaceous follicle and appears on the face, chest and back.
This multifactorial skin type is caused by dysseborrhea1, in which the composition of sebum is degraded, and therefore imbalanced.

Acne-prone skin is prone to the following:
a. Acne lesions
b. Inflammation and acne (there are two types):
- Inflammation related to the formation of spots/pimples
- Inflammation related to skin irritation 
c. Dehydration


1Dysseborrhea is an imbalance of sebum composition and the starting point for acne. It disrupts the skin’s barrier function.

Contrary to popular belief, acne-prone skin suffers from dehydration due to alteration of the skin barrier. It can be sensitive, easily weakened, and tends to become dehydrated due to the side-effects of strong acne products (cosmetics or medications).

The more acne products used, the more likely the user will describe their skin as sensitive, fragile or even intolerant.

His or her skin experiences dryness, irritation, shine and spots or blemishes.
