What causes acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is about as complex as it gets and only drinking more water or changing your skincare routine will just not cut it. While there are many factors that contribute to the development of acne, some of the most significant causes include an overburdened liver and kidneys, a disbalanced gut, a congested lymphatic system as well as emotional distress.


The liver is the main detoxifying organ in the body and plays a crucial role in the elimination of waste and toxins. When the liver is not functioning optimally, it can lead to an accumulation of toxins in the body, which can trigger the development of acne.


The kidneys are responsible for filtering waste and toxins from the blood and maintaining proper fluid balance in the body. When the kidneys are not functioning properly, it can lead to the accumulation of toxins, which can cause a number of skin problems, including acne. 

Disbalanced gut

The gut plays a crucial role in the health of the body and is often referred to
as the second brain. A disbalanced gut can cause a number of health problems, including skin issues like acne. When our gut is disbalanced it builds the perfect breeding ground for fungus, bad bacteria and parasites that in turn will wreak havoc on our bodys system.

Lymphatic System

This system is responsible for removing waste and toxins from the body, but when it becomes congested, it can lead to a buildup of toxins. This buildup can contribute to the development of acne, as the skin becomes clogged with impurities, leading to the formation of pimples and cysts. Additionally, a congested lymphatic system can lead to inflammation and an immune system response, which can further exacerbate acne. 

Emotional distress

Stress and emotional distress can trigger the release of hormones that increase inflammation which triggers oil production, leading to clogged pores and the development of pimples as well as other types of acne. 

In conclusion, understanding the causes of acne is crucial start healing. By addressing your liver, kidney, lymphatic system, disbalanced gut, and emotional distress, you can take control of your skin health and achieve a clearer, more radiant complexion in no time.
