Skin condition: Blemished skin
Woran du unreine Haut erkennst
Impure skin is an unpleasant skin condition that is manifested by bumps on the skin. These include blackheads, pimples and redness or inflammation. Another sign of impure skin is increased sebum production. If your skin looks too oily and shiny, it can be a sign of blemish-prone skin. An uneven skin structure or enlarged pores can also be signs of impure skin.
Digression: blemished skin vs. acne
Blemished skin and acne have similar symptoms, but there are significant differences in the severity of the lesions and treatment options. Acne is a more serious form of blemished skin where inflammation is present. There are often large pimples that can be inflamed or swollen and painful. In most cases, a doctor must be consulted to treat acne-related problems.
The causes of skin blemishes are diverse and can vary from person to person. Often it is a combination of different factors.
Hormonal imbalance: The most common causes of impure skin are hormonal changes, especially during puberty, but also during the menstrual cycle or during menopause. But stress can also disturb the hormonal balance in our body and lead to inflammation and irritation of the skin. Among other things, the changes in hormonal balance mean that more sebum is produced, which can lead to clogged pores and acne.
Excessive sebum production: Our body normally produces a certain amount of sebum to protect our skin from external aggressions. However, when too much sebum is produced, it can build up in the pores and eventually lead to inflammation and acne formation.
Unhealthy diet: Especially sweets and fast food are extremely harmful to the health of our skin.
Unsuitable care products: Many people use products that are not tailored to their skin type or skin condition. This can lead to irritation and inflammation.
Improper cleaning: It's very important to clean your face regularly - but not too often! Poor hygiene and cleaning agents that are too aggressive can lead to skin impurities.

Eating healthy has a major impact on skin health. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables increases the amount of vitamin A in your diet and helps reduce inflammation in the skin. Avoiding sweets or foods with a high glycemic index can also have a positive effect. It is equally important that you reduce your stress level and get enough sleep.
