There is no single factor that causes acne. Acne develops when the sebaceous (oil) glands are activated during puberty or due to other changes in hormone levels. Acne is most common among adolescents but affects people of all ages.
Sebum (oil) is a natural liquid, lubricating material that protects the skin. Acne is a condition that occurs when your follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. This results in inflammation and bacterial infestation of P. Acnes. Acne often causes whiteheads, blackheads and pimples, which typically occurs on the face, chest, upper back and shoulder. Signs and symptoms of acne differ according to the severity of the condition.
Acne treatments work by reducing the production of oil, fighting bacterial infection and reducing inflammation to help prevent scarring. Search for power terms on goods such as antibacterial, germicidal, healing, repairing, protecting and mattifying on products.
