Why does acne happen?
Acne isn’t just common in teenagers going through puberty, it is also a common issue for adults of any age. You can identify a break-out of acne by seeing small bumps on the surface of the skin.
These can be classified as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or cysts. If we were to put our skin under a microscope, we would see lots of tiny holes in the skin, these are pores/hair follicles.
These pores contain oil glands that produce an oil called sebum. Acne happens due to these pores becoming blocked with excess sebum and dead skill cells. This then acts as the perfect site to grow bacteria which leads to a swollen and red appearance to the skin.
How to identify the type of skin problem?
Whitehead - When a pore closes and creates a bulge from the surface of the skin, with a white appearance.
Blackhead - When a clogged pore stays open - dark in appearance.
Pimple - Small red bump due to bacteria going under the surface of the skin.
