Acne is a common skin condition that comes about when hair follicles under the skin get clogged. This clogging is caused by sebum (oil that naturally occurs on the skin), dead skin cells and dirt get trapped in the skin’s pores causing lesions commonly referred to as pimples or zits.
In healthy skin, sebum, which the skin produces naturally, flows uninhibited onto the skin’s surface. Keratinocytes, skin cells, rise to the surface as your body sheds skin cells. This is the normal functioning of healthy skin and it goes on uninhibited.
However, in acne-prone skin, the fine hair in the hair follicle, as well as the sebum (oil) and shed skin cells all stick together in the pore. This provides a good breeding ground for bacteria to thrive leading to inflammation that characterizes acne – swelling, pain, redness and heat. When the wall of the plugged pore breaks, sebum, bacteria and skin cells flow into the nearby skin causing pimples. These can occur on the face, back, chest and shoulders. While acne commonly appears during the teenage years, it can continue into adulthood. Types of acne include blackheads, white heads, papules, pimples, nodules and cystic acne.
