What it is and what it is for?


Acne is one of the most common skin diseases, affecting a large part of the population at any time in life.
Acne one is an injury caused by the increased production of sebum from the sebaceous glands, which leave the pores clogged and increase the proliferation of bacteria.

That said, acne and pore treatments are intended to prevent and combat acne.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Acne and pore treatments have several ingredients, and you should look for the following:
