WHAT IS ACNE?
Acne is the term for pimples and complexion problems that trouble many teenagers, adults, and even young children. Pimples mainly develop on the face, but they can often be found on the neck, chest, back, and upper arms as well. Breakouts are only a skin problem, and typically have nothing to do with your general health.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES?
Acne occurs when a pore in the skin becomes clogged by dead skin cells. Normally, dead skin cells will rise to the surface of a pore, where the body sheds it. When your body produces a lot of sebum (oil that prevents our skin from drying out), it can cause dead skin cells to combine and stick together. When this happens, these cells become trapped inside of the pore instead of rising to the surface, causing breakouts to develop.
Pores can also become clogged by bacteria that live on our skin. Bacteria thrives in pores; once inside it will quickly multiply. With an abundance of bacteria inside, pores become inflamed and skin becomes red and swollen. If the inflammation is deep enough, acne cysts or nodules will appear.
The most common factors that cause acne are:
- Family history
- Pressure or friction on the skin
