Additional Info

Acnecide is a gel that effectively treats the cause of Acne. This product available from Pharmadirect.ie does so by attacking the bacteria that causes Propionibacterium acne within the skin. Anecide gel uses benzol peroxide to fight against acne of the face,chest and back.

What causes Acne?

Acne occurs when glands near the surface of the skin produce too much sebum, which is a type of oil designed to lubricate the skin and stop it from drying out. This excess sebum builds up on the surface with dead skin cells and plugs the pores. Once blocked, pores can become infected, resulting in acne. A common change in the skins production of sebum can be caused by a change in hormone levels. It is believed that an increase in testosterone during puberty is the cause of acne in teenagers. Acne can also occur for women around their period or during pregnancy due to a fluctuation in their hormone levels. While there are many causes of Acne such as diet, hormone level and medication. Some believe that acne occurs because of poor hygiene, this is untrue. Cleansing and toning the skin with intense products will not cure acne it may actually make it worse when using very abrasive products.
