Growth hormone is not the only hormone at play. Closely associated is another hormone called Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF) which results from too much stress inside and outside the body, increasing frustrating amounts of sebum and skin cells. These hormones influence the environment that creates the congestion, breakouts, and stubborn bacteria lingering on the skin.
Is acne bacteria the only bacteria involved in teen acne?
These two hormones also have an effect on the skin’s microbiome, where microorganisms live. It is the hyper-activation of the body’s immune response that alters its state which leads to further issues. Because of this, several species of acne bacteria growing during this time, many of which are particularly inflammatory. Another consequence of this microbiome alteration is an increase in the growth of yeasts and fungi on the skin. Yeasts such as Malasezzia require sebum as a food source. During the teen years, sebum is produced in abundance, leaving an overgrowth of fungi and yeast on the skin. These micro-organisms can become difficult to remove, due to the nature of them forming a protective glue around themselves called a Biofilm.
Don't all cleansers clean the skin?
With teenage skin being oilier, they need a cleanser that effectively cleanses, without stripping the skin, drying it out. Scrubbing the skin isn’t the answer either, because the bacteria are all stuck together in the biofilm glue, which literally anchors them to live skin cells. Normal cleansers simply don’t remove them. The Clean cleanser step is specifically designed for teen skin. Exclusive to Roccoco, it contains a yeast ferment that removes the biofilm for a super clean result, without feeling stripped or dry. It also contains anti-inflammatory essential fatty acids to restore the skin barrier.
