What causes acne in adults ?
The causes of back acne are the same in adults as in teenagers. The skin produces excess sebum or sebum that is too thick, which is hormonally caused, clogs the pores of the skin and traps dead skin cells. A bacterium, Propionibacterium acnes, then develops and causes skin inflammation.
What to avoid ?
First of all, you should avoid using grain-based scrubs on problem areas. Instead, use chemical scrubs (AHA/BHA/PHA). Indeed, the grains will damage your skin and stimulate the production of sebum.

This consists of evacuating toxins from our body by stimulating our purifying organs (emunctories) as a preventive or curative measure.
To maintain our health and restore energy, our body needs regular internal cleansing.
There are simple ways to do this, such as eating detoxifying foods and juices, using medicinal plants, massages, baths and relaxation.

The link between toxins and acne...
Acne can be the result of the elimination of some of the toxins by the skin. Concretely, if the skin has toxins to evacuate, it will do so in 2 ways:
This acidity can also alter the hydrolipidic film that protects the skin from external attacks. And therefore allow external toxins to penetrate the skin barrier more easily.
