WHAT CAUSES ACNE?

Hormones within the body can trigger increased oil production in pores within the skin. The excess oil sometimes gets trapped within the pore because it either has no opening, or it becomes blocked. The trapped oil causes blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. The propionibacterium acnes is a type of bacteria that naturally grows on the skin. This bacteria causes the inflammation and redness that can be seen when too much of the skin’s oil is produced and trapped within pores. if left untreated the inflammation can cause scarring.

HOW CAN IT BE TREATED?

In healthy skin, the oil flows out from the sebaceous glands, through the follicle opening and onto the surface of the skin. It is when this process is disrupted in some way that acne can occur. To treat acne, this process must be restored to normal. The AcneZap soaps help to restore this process and keep pores clean and clear of the oil and dirt that cause acne.

DO I HAVE TO USE BOTH SOAPS?

The AcneZap system is designed to take advantage of two very different processes. The DEEP CLEANSING soap is an antibacterial cleanser and the BLEMISH RELIEF soap helps to reduce and protect against the appearance of blemishes. Both of these soaps do work individually, however we recommend using both soaps in tandem to achieve the best possible results.

HOW DO I USE THE SYSTEM?

Start by gently splashing the affected area with warm water. Work up a good lather with the soap in your hands. Apply the lather in your hands to your skin in circular motions. Then finally wash off the lather with cool water. We recommend using both soaps on the same day, for example: use the Deep Cleansing soap in the morning and the Blemish Relief soap at night.

CAN I USE THE ACNEZAP SYSTEM WITH MY PRESCRIBED ACNE MEDICATION?

If you are taking any skin medication, whether it is for acne or another condition, we recommend that you consult with your healthcare professional before using any acne clearing system.
