Acne Prone Skin

Hormone Production and Acne

This inflammatory skin condition often begins with girls by age 12 and soon after in boys at age 14. During the adolescent years, elevated levels of hormone production cause acne.

Hormones directly affect the health of the skin areas with the highest concentrations of sebaceous follicles. Hormones also control the level of oil production within the skin's oil glands. An increase in oil production paired with bacteria is the primary cause of acne. Skin bacteria are apt to multiply in this environment, clogging pores and causing an increase in blemishes.

Acne generally ends in young men and women by 20 - 25 years of age. However, hormone production changes throughout life, with occasional surges that may cause a reappearance of acne. The predominance of this skin condition during adolescence paired with its occasional reemergence over the years makes it the most common reason for consulting a dermatologist.

Control Oil and Bacteria for Clearer Skin

Glytone's Acne Therapy products effectively target acne prone skin through proven at-home acne fighting formulas. Oil over-production and acne-related bacteria are managed by unique formulas to keep your skin clear and healthy.

The following ingredients are the key players in combating acne:

  • Salicylic Acid - Exfoliates the skin’s surface to help decrease acne bacteria. An effective acne treatment always begins with exfoliation to unclog the pores
  • Benzoyl Peroxide - Helps control surface oil and neutralize Propionibacterium Acnes (P. Acnes) on the skin
  • Glycolic Acid - Helps to refine and re-texturize the skin


If Acne Therapy products are used on a daily basis, you can achieve smoother skin, more even pigmentation, and a reduction in pore size all while effectively combating acne.
