Acne is closely related to inflammation and hormonal and microbiome imbalances, which are influenced by epigenetic factors such as stress, nutrition, and other lifestyle choices. Periods of sustained stress, lack of sleep or poor nutrition can lead to flare-ups. Consuming whey proteins, steroids & vitamin B12 in some cases can also trigger acne. On the skin, a damaged skin barrier aggravates acne or blemishes. Skin Diligent's natural & high performing products target skin health and cellular health to resolve blemishes & acne-related issues.
