   and gradually disappear after 20 years. Acne vulgaris develops against the background of hormonal changes in the body that contribute to activation of the sebaceous glands and their functions. The sebaceous glands secrete wherein an increased amount of sebum with the change in its chemical composition.

This process is accompanied by increased desquamation of the stratum corneum of the skin surface, causing exfoliated skin cells clog the sebaceous glands, forming plugs - comedones. Comedones are covered with dust and dirt and looks like black dots. The fully isolated from the external environment sebaceous glands begin to reproduce an infection that causes inflammation of the sebaceous glands - the pimples or blackheads.

Acne requires complex treatment.

This preparation when applied to the skin very quickly eliminates the main signs of inflammation - swelling and redness of the skin.

As a result of an inflammatory response quickly fizzles.
