What is it?
Acne is one of the most common skin disorders that can affect any person of any age and of any gender. Acne can present itself in a few different forms ranging from blackheads and whiteheads, pimples, nodules, and cysts, in the order of severity.
Acne is caused when pores of the skin become clogged with dead skin cells and oil. The oil and skin cells inside pores create the perfect environment for bacteria responsible for causing acne to live and multiply. While bacteria feed on the follicle’s contents this causes inflammation. It is important to remember that inflammation is primarily an inflammatory disorder of the skin.
Normally acne is more common in adolescents going through puberty and women with hormonal imbalances, this is due to the fact that the androgen hormone can stimulate oil glands to over produce natural oils, setting the pace for acne to start developing.
