Formation Process of
There are about 3,000,000 cells, 100 sweat pores and 30 sebaceous
glands AND hair pores per square centimeter of skin. The sweat pores excrete sweat, water, waste,
and salt through the sweat ducts while also regulating body temperature.
The hair pores secrete sebaceous secretions through the gland (oil)
ducts to lubricate the hair and at the same time emulsify themselves with sweat water to form a
protective barrier known as Sebum Film. This creamy film helps bond the surface dead cells
together, otherwise the surface cells will appear loose & ruptured, and give a mouldy
appearance like in cases of very dry and dehydrated skins. Ruptured skin is as bad as acne skin,
and will require more acne cures to get rid of acne.
When oil, sweat, water, and surface dead cells are well balanced and
well mixed, together they form a layer of natural translucent foundation cream that gives skin a
healthy tone, supple look and acne free.
However, this ideal condition won't last long as water from the sweat
will soon evaporate, leaving the remaining solid constituents behind which quickly harden into
plugs of wax and block the outward flow of sebum to the surface, through the follicles and
The retained sebum accumulates and increases in amount, and the
external area hardens further and becomes overlaid with stale cells to form comedones. If the
condition is not properly treated, the sebaceous ducts and hair follicles will become enlarged, and
the skin becomes more coarse, with open pores being evident. This is an ongoing natural process on
every person's skin and cannot be stopped unless a person dies. Dr. Pierre's Cleansers from the
Acne Treatment range range can avoid such condition. Else to
get rid of acne later is costly and a hassle. Moreover, in today's polluted industrial environment
and hectic lifestyle, our skin is flexed and stretched, and as such, an ideal condition is almost
impossible. Thus, every cleanser formulated must be at least half as effective as blackheads
remover, and not aggravating good skin into acne
Seborrhoea is a condition of overactivity of the sebaceous glands,
leading to excessive secretions and abnormal oiliness of the skin's surface. The high density of
sebaceous glands in the face, scalp, centre of the chest, and back causes the seborrhoeic
condition, and as such, comedones, are most evident in these areas.
Teenagers have the highest cases of seborrhoea.
When they reach puberty, hormonal changes increase the gland activity, and secretion becomes
excessive. Seborrhoea, and also comedones, are the basis of several skin diseases, particularly
Acne Vulgaris. Dr. Pierre's Blackheads Remover and range of
Acne Cures products are the ultimate answers to Acne Skin and to get rid of acne
Conventional Methods of Removing
a) Squeezing with fingers
b) Squeezing with a metal comedone extractor
c) Suction with a vacuum tube
All 3 methods are painful and will leave scars, often permanently.
When the skin is ruptured by these harsh treatment methods, it will become septic and develop into
acne requiring further acne cures.
Method (c), can also cause broken capillary conditions and is also
not effective. Only the very superficial dead cells and dirt may be sucked away, leaving the
condition with no evident improvement.
