V1 What is Acne?

So what really causes acne and how do you get rid of it?

Acne, or the medical term acne vulgaris, is the most common skin condition in the world, so you’re not alone in your battle with acne. In fact, nearly 85% of people experience acne at some point in their lives according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

Acne really isn't your fault, it’s actually a combination of natural factors. Your skin condition is influenced by genetics and hormones that determine how quickly and easily acne bacteria grows in your skin, how much oil your body produces in your pores, and how severely your skin reacts with inflammation. Medications, diet, cosmetics, stress, excessive irritation, and hot climates can also contribute to acne.

Our bodies produce hormones called androgens. These hormones are a natural part of the body’s ecosystem. Androgens cause the skins’ oil glands (doctors call them sebaceous glands) to enlarge, which can lead to clogging of the pores. The acne process starts inside these pores, which are the passageway from the bottom of the hair follicle to the skin’s surface. When excess skin oils mix with dead cells and impurities, they plug that pore and create the perfect conditions for acne to begin.

A plug traps natural skin oil and dead skin inside the follicle, providing an environment for acne-causing bacteria to grow and release toxins. The body reacts with inflammation and swelling which produces pimples and zits.

Zapne works by absorbing deep into the pores of your skin, minimizing excess oil production, gently shedding away dead skin cells, minimizing inflammation, and refining the pores.

Zapne's powerful natural nutrients feed the skin, while antioxidants and calming botanicals allow the skin to naturally find its balance of healthy levels of oils and create a clearer, brighter, and more radiant-looking complexion.

Continued use of ZAPNE significantly reduces future outbreaks and help prevent acne before it becomes visible or scars your skin.
