Acne which is a skin condition, usually of the face, that is common in adolescents, is characterised by red pimples, and is caused by the inflammation of sebaceous glands through bacterial infection.
This skin issue which ordinarily begins around the age of 10 is supposed to be set off by hormonal changes in the body; In young ladies, it is because of expansion in discharge of both the estrogen and testosterone while in young men it is because of expansion in emission of the testosterone which expands the emission of oil in the body subsequently making the skin to be inclined to skin break out.
Another trigger is bacteria infection which is as a result of blockage of the pores on the skin by the bacteria. Each pore of the skin is the opening to a follicle. The follicle is made up of a hair and a sebaceous (oil) gland.
The oil gland releases sebum (oil), which travels up the hair, out of the pore, and onto your skin. The sebum keeps your skin lubricated and soft.
A pimple appears when bacteria grows in a clogged pore and the oil is unable to escape.
When the acne appears on one’s face, it can affect one’s self-esteem and, over time, may cause permanent physical scarring.
