CBD for Skin Acne
What is Acne?
Acne is skin condition caused by inflammation of your skin glands or hair follicles. It can cause pimples and scaring, typically on the face, forehead, chest, upper back or shoulders. Most people have acne at some point in their life, typically between the ages of 11 and 30.
Acne happens when the skin pore surrounding the hair follicle becomes clogged with dead cells and oil produced by the sebaceous glands that normally keep the face moisturized.
Most people have had an experience with four main types of acne.
- White heads - Blocked pores which bulge out the follicle wall
- Black heads – pores that become congested with bacteria and oil
- Pimples – Bacteria induced inflammation at the follicle tip
- Cysts – Blockages and inflammation that occur deep inside the follicle
