Get Flawless: How Blue Light Therapy Kills Acne-Causing Bacteria

You got one right before a big date. You got two on your wedding day. You got more than you could count before an important job interview. Acne—the skin condition that seems to be as easy to cure as the common cold. You always seem to wake up to a big and painful pimple the day that you need to put your best face forward. Be glad to know you aren’t alone: 85% of men and women ages 12-24 experience at least some form of acne.

The ruckus going on beneath your skin before you see visible acne starts weeks in advance. It all starts with a clogged pore—your dead skin cells mix with oil, and trap the nasty bacteria inside. Oil production plays a significant role in acne. If you are stressed or triggering increased hormonal activity, your glands will kick your oil production into overdrive.

Bacteria loves to hang around inside of clogged pores and feed on your skin’s oil. Once the bacteria start feeding on the oil, it multiplies, causing the infamous swelling and redness that we see at the start of a pimple. The bacteria continue to chow down on the oil, releasing inflammatory grime that your red and white blood cells detect as an attack. Those cells will go to battle on this “infection” and cause even more redness and swelling to occur. And that’s how a pimple is born!

Now we raise the question: How do you get rid of acne? Now that we’ve learned that bacteria and dead skin cells are the culprits causing these tiny nightmares, you’ll be glad to know that blue light therapy combined with expertly formulated acne skincare can banish acne for good.
