What is Acne?
Acne is a result of hormonal changes. When we’re teenagers, we produce more hormones than at any other time during our lives, and that hormonal imbalance leads to oilier skin. The oil, or sebum, along with dead skin cells and bacteria, plugs hair follicles and that trapped matter causes the skin to become inflamed and red. In some cases the impacted follicle produces pus and the pimple becomes a whitehead. In other cases, the pore remains open and the material becomes a blackhead.
Sebum is actually a good thing, as it keeps our skin moist and elastic. Overproduction of it is what causes acne. Those with naturally oily skin have increased outbreaks, and those with drier skin have less severe acne.
Different types of acne cause different types of pimples and outbreaks. Below are some photos of the different types of acne.
