What Causes Blemishes With Steve Mould – The Body Shop


The Body Shop India


We all suffer from the odd breakout, but do you know what causes them? We’ve teamed up with science author Steve Mould to get the lowdown… So why do we get spots? We asked Steve Mould – presenter, author and all-round science genius – to help us understand the facts behind those pesky breakouts. Because the more we know, the better we can figure out how to battle those blemishes. WHAT CAUSES BLEMISHES? • Spots are caused by a build-up of bacteria in your pores, called p acnes • Blocked pores can be caused by everything from pollution to over-cleansing • Your immune system tries to fight the bacteria by sending blood to the affected area – which looks like redness and swelling • You get an annoying zit! WHY IS TEA TREE OIL GOOD FOR BLEMISHES? Tea tree oil has anti-bacterial properties – basically, it helps neutralise bacteria. This helps your immune system fight back against blemishes. Our Tea Tree skincare harnesses the antibacterial power of tea tree leaves, so you can put together a regime for visibly clearer looking skin. NEED MORE HELP?
