What is Acne?

Acne starts when hair follicles are blocked with dead skin cells and oil. This can lead to various types of blemishes, including:

  • Blackheads are open bumps on the skin that fill with excess oil and debris and turn black when exposed to air.
  • Whiteheads: Closed bumps that remain white or flesh-coloured.
  • Papules: Small, red, tender bumps.
  • Pustules: Similar to papules but with a white or yellow centre filled with pus.
  • Nodules: Large, solid, painful lumps that form beneath the skin’s surface.
  • Cysts: Painful, pus-filled lumps that can cause scarring.

Why Acne Occurs:

Several factors contribute to acne development:

  • Excess Oil Production (Sebum): Oil glands produce too much sebum, which can clog pores.
  • Dead Skin Cells: When dead skin cells don’t shed, they can mix with oil and clog pores.
  • Bacteria: Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is a bacteria that lives on the skin. It can thrive in clogged pores and cause inflammation.
  • Hormones: Fluctuations in hormones e.g. during puberty or menstruation, can trigger acne.
  • Genetics: Some people are genetically predisposed to acne.

Other factors, for example, stress, diet, and certain medications, can also worsen acne. However, poor hygiene is not a cause of acne.
