Acne is a skin condition that occurs as a result of a disorder of the pilosebaceous unit (hair follicle). This results in an overproduction of sebum and hyperkeratinization which causes the follicles to become clogged with oil and dead skin cells leading to the formation of comedones – whiteheads and blackheads. This allows for the growth of Cutibacterium acnes (C.Acnes) bacteria which causes inflammation resulting in development of papules and pustules.


There are two main types of acne; Comedonal and Inflammatory.

Comedonal Acne is commonly associated with Whiteheads, small flesh-coloured spots or bumps that form because a hair follicle is completely blocked by sebum and dead skin cells.

It is also associated with Blackheads. Small, dark-coloured spots that may appear as slightly raised bumps. The skin around a blackhead usually appears normal, while the centre of the blackhead is darker than the surrounding area.

Inflammatory Acne is commonly associated with, Papules, Pustules, Nodules and Cysts. This type of acne is characterized by red, inflamed, often painful lumps and bumps across the skin.


At Bare Beauty we offer a variety of treatments and skincare plans for both types of acne and acne scarring.

We use Biritex which has a unique range of products that work together in perfect synergy to not only reduce spots, but to effectively manage all associated symptoms of spot-prone skin including, keratinization, oiliness, inflammation, scarring and hyperpigmentation – all whilst maintaining excellent skin tolerance.

Biretix is designed to successfully manage all four key components involved in the development of spots to effectively: • Reduce and prevent Keratinization by renewing and removing dead skin cells • Regulate sebum production • Reduce the proliferation of C.Acne bacteria • Reduce and prevent inflammation

We combine this range of products with Celluma Light Therapy to offer a facial that tackles every type of acne. We can then guide you with same products to use at home to get the best out of your treatment.
