What is acne?

Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that occurs when pores become impacted by sebum (the skin’s natural oil) and dead skin skins. This common skin condition causes pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and deeper lumps, such as cysts or nodules. These effects most commonly appear on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms.

Acne is not just an adolescent ailment, but it affects those of all ages and has various causes. The leading causes of acne include:

  • Excess oil production
  • Oil and dead skin cells clogging hair follicles
  • Androgens (male hormones) and hormonal imbalances from life stages like puberty, pregnancy, or menopause
  • C. acne bacteria

Acne Symptoms & Treatment Options

Acne symptoms revolve around the presence of clogged pores that result in whiteheads, blackheads, bumps, inflamed spots, or pus-filled cysts on the skin. The level of pain and the location of your breakouts can vary depending on the type of acne you are suffering from. Common types of acne include comedonal acne, Inflammatory acne, cystic acne, and hormonal acne.
