What Is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the formation of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Acne can also occur because of excess sebum production, clogged pores, and harmful p.acnes bacteria. It can affect people of all ages but is most commonly associated with puberty and adolescence. Persistent adult acne can also lead to deep facial scars that cause self-consciousness.

Symptoms of Acne Breakouts:

  • Pimples: raised red or white bumps on the skin
  • Blackheads: small, dark bumps that appear on the surface of the skin
  • Whiteheads: white or flesh-colored bumps just under the surface of the skin
  • Cystic acne: large, painful bumps that form beneath the skin’s surface
  • Oily skin: excess oil production can contribute to acne breakouts
  • Scarring: severe acne can leave permanent scars on the skin
  • Inflammation: acne can cause redness, swelling, and tenderness in the affected area
  • Skin sensitivity: some people with acne may experience increased sensitivity or discomfort when using certain skincare products or makeup

Possible Causes of Acne:

  • Hormones: hormonal changes during puberty and pregnancy can contribute to acne
  • Genetics: if your parents have a history of acne, you may be more likely to develop it
  • Bacteria: certain strains of bacteria on the skin can contribute to the development of acne
  • Excess oil production: overactive oil glands can lead to clogged pores and acne
  • Certain medications: some medications, such as corticosteroids, can contribute to acne
  • Diet: a diet high in refined carbohydrates and dairy products may increase acne risk
  • Environmental factors: exposure to certain pollutants or irritants can contribute to acne
