What is acne?

Acne is the term for pimples and complexion problems that trouble many teenagers, adults, and even young children. Pimples mainly develop on the face, but they can often be found on the neck, chest, back, and upper arms as well. Acne is only a skin problem, and typically has nothing to do with your general health.

What are the causes?

Acne occurs when a pore in the skin becomes clogged by dead skin cells. Typically, dead skin cells will rise to the surface of a pore, where the body sheds it. When your body produces a lot of sebum (oil that prevents our skin from drying out), it can cause dead skin cells to combine and stick together. When this happens, these cells become trapped inside of the pore instead of rising to the surface, and acne will develop.

Pores can also become clogged by the bacteria that lives on our skin, p. acnes. Bacteria thrives in pores; once inside, it will quickly multiply. With an abundance of bacteria inside, the pore becomes inflamed, and your skin will appear red and swollen. If the inflammation is deep enough, acne cysts or nodules will appear.
