What is Acne?

Acne is a skin condition that has stood the test of time. The majority amongst us has had to deal with this condition at one or the other point in our lives. Acne results when the pores on our skin get clogged with oils and accompanying dust and impurities. While the cause of this skin condition is still relatively unknown, there seems to be an underlying genetic as well as hormonal imbalance involving testosterone resulting in these breakouts. The most acne-prone areas of the body include the face, back, neck, and chest.

Acne results when our pores become clogged with oils released from our skin along with atmospheric impurities. Impurities irritate the skin and thus induce an inflammatory reaction on the surface of the skin. Meanwhile, bacteria also manage to sag this opportunity and grow inside these clogged pores. These two subsequent processes result in acne lesions that can range from a small unnoticeable white head or black head to a large and extremely painful cyst or nodule that leaves a scar upon rupture.

Acne pimples and skin irritation share a directly proportional relationship. Consequently, our skin is healthiest when it is in balance. The less exposure your skin has to any irritation, the lesser are your chances of experiencing any subsequent breakouts.

Causes of Acne

Coming down to possible skin irritants, our skin can be very sensitive. Therefore, irritation can be caused by anything ranging from sun exposure, dryness, shaving, and pore-clogging makeup to prolonged contact of any substance with the skin, scratching, or aggressive rubbing. The trick is to keep your skin away from such irritating products and environmental conditions and taking necessary precautions through proper skin care.
