What Causes: Blemishes
The word ‘blemishes’ is an ‘umbrella’ term for a number of different skin conditions, so there are many different reasons as to why you may have a blemish, or blemishes, on your skin.
- If your blemishes are acne-related, then they may be caused by fluctuations in your hormones.
- If your blemishes are due to hyperpigmentation, you may simply be genetically predisposed to having areas of skin that are a slightly different tone to other areas of your skin, or you may be experiencing changes in your hormone levels due to pregnancy, or the menopause.
- Blemishes can also be caused by stress, overexposure to the sun, build-up of dead skin cells, and because of excess sebum that results in acne.
