Acne, also known as acne vulgaris /pimples , is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. It is characterized by blackheads or whiteheads, pimples, oily skin, and possible scarring.
Genetics is thought to be the primary cause. Other factors include - emotional stress, hormonal changes, menstruation, PCOS, propionibacterium acnes , cosmetic use, unhealthy food habits, faulty life style,poor hygiene, use of certain medicines, etc.
More androgen hormone secretion- The sebum glands are very sensitive to androgen hormone. Rising of androgen hormone levels cause the oil glands to more enlarge and to produce more sebum. Excessive sebum can break down cellular walls in the pores, causing bacteria to grow.
TYPES of acne :
