Acne can occur due to various reasons and at various stages in a person’s life. Medically known as Acne Vulgaris, this skin condition involves the oil glands at the base of hair follicles. Medically speaking, acne is not dangerous. However, it can leave undesirable marks and scars on your face. There are often psychological side effects associated with acne, such as poor self-image, Depression and Anxiety.
Overactive Sebaceous Glands produce too much oil that leads to blocked pores. This in turn promotes bacterial growth which ultimately causes inflammation which shows up in the form in Bumps on the skin. The primary trigger of most cases of Acne is a Hormonal Imbalance. Hormones Stimulate the Oil Glands to produce more Sebum, which can Block Pores. Additionally, a Enetic Predisposition, Stress and Environmental Factors can also trigger Acne. Acne can present itself as common hiteheads, blackheads and papules all the way up to more serious pustules, nodules and cysts.
