Summary of the issue

Everything you need to know about acne

Acne is widely considered a chronic skin condition that mainly affects adolescents, although epidemiological data shows that a significant number of adults over 25 years of age are also affected, especially women*.


The spot is the tip of the iceberg!

There are two stages in acne: the visible stage (comedones) and the invisible stage (microcomedones). Behind one comedone, there are one hundred hidden microcomedones, which could turn into comedones. 

The end of an acne pimple’s life

Once a pimple has formed, how do you get rid of it?

All pimples will eventually disappear: over a period of days to weeks, the macrophages (immune cells) will activate the cleansing phase. What’s their role? They remove the skin tissue damaged by the pimple. 

To get rid of your pimples, clean your pores to limit oil build-up and inflammation, and make an appointment with a dermatologist for further advice.


A few good habits to combat imperfections.

Cleanse your skin twice a day and remove your make-up every night.

Shelve all your harsh cleansing products! Harsh products stimulate sebum secretion, encouraging and aggravating the appearance of acne. Opt instead for more suitable gentle cleansing gels. 

Avoid picking at your blemishes. This will limit the risk of a pimple forming, or a bacterial secondary infection if you already have a pimple. Don't squeeze your spots, either: impurities may penetrate deeper into your skin and scars may appear.
