Why Your Skin Has Acne?


Causes of Acne


Acne is a condition that affects 85% of all people sometime in their life. The American Academy of Dermatology reports that by the mid-teen age, more than 40% of adolescents have acne or acne scarring which require treatment by a dermatologist. It is a disease that causes pimples, deep lumps (cysts & nodules) and plugged pores (white heads and black heads often appearing on the face, neck, back, shoulders & upper arms. Apart from its effects on skin health, acne is often also directly related with mental health problems such as reduced self esteem and can even lead to depression in extreme cases. 


Acne has 3 main causes: 


1) Over Production of oil (sebum) by enlarged sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin

2) Obstructions of the hair folicles which inhibit the release of the sebum. 

3) Growth of bacteria alled P. Acnes in the hair follicles leading to inflammation
