CÂU HỎI THƯỜNG GẶP: CÓ MỐI LIÊN HỆ GIỮA MỤN VÀ GÀU KHÔNG?
Dandruff and acne have different causes, but many people find that they have both at the same stage - usually during puberty.
That's because both are caused by hormonal changes that make your body produce more oil.
In the case of This dandruff , oil - called sebum - is broken down by a naturally occurring bacterium, Malassezia globosa . In about 50% of people, this leads to dandruff because they are sensitive to oleic acid generated by this process.
Acne on the other hand is due to the increased amount of oil secreted in combination with the dead surface cells that clog pores in the skin. This can lead to bacteria that often live on the skin causing clogged pores, leading to symptoms we know like acne.
Therefore, although dandruff and acne are all due to various causes , they are both caused by increased oil secretion. This is why many people suffer from acne and dandruff at the same time because both may be associated with hormonal changes that increase the amount of oil secreted, like the phenomenon that occurs during puberty.
