Acne, also known as pimples is a skin disease, which manifests itself in every human, especially in adolescence. The cause of this disease is the body's inability to throw the subcutaneous oil through the ducts of the sebaceous glands due to the blockage of the ducts with the denser layer of oil (sebum) on the skin surface.

Almost every person faced with this problem during certain periods of life. Normally, our body can cope with the disease elimination without any outside intervention. Otherwise, the disease takes a chronic form and adversely affects the quality of life. In such cases, treatment of acne becomes imminent.

How does Acne/Pustules Occur?

The name of the sebaceous glands is derived from the oily substance (sebum) that they produce. Under normal circumstances, sebum climbs through the hair follicle and out to the skin surface. Blackheads occur when sebum remains within the follicle and cannot exit. Acne appears most often where the sebaceous glands are denser: the face, neck, back, arms and shoulders. Clogged sebaceous glands, filled with sebum in the form of black dots, are called comedones, and red, swollen and festering rashes on the skin are called papules, pustules and nodules.


• Genetic factors

Acne is a disease which possesses genetic characteristics. The fact is that everyone, to some extent can experience the acne problem but some people have a genetic predisposition to certain types of acne. If the mother or father of a teenager had a similar problem at any time, their children will have a high predisposition to the disease.

• Hormones (androgens)

Acne usually appears when the body begins to produce more of the hormone androgen. Level of androgen reaches its peak at the age of 11-14 years, and acne increases at this time, too. Changes in hormone levels due to the menstrual cycle in young women also causes acne outburst. These hormonal changes also affect the sensitivity of the sebaceous glands to androgen.

• Bacteria

A blocked follicle presents a suitable environment for the bacteria growth, especially P. acnes bacteria that live in this environment. These bacteria feed on sebum and are present on the skin of every human, with or without acne. When the sebaceous glands become clogged with sebum, P. acne bacteria multiply much faster. The chemical substances produced by bacteria cause inflammation of the follicle and skin.

• Increased Sebum Production

Once stimulated by androgen, sebaceous glands produce more sebum. Sebum accumulates inside the follicle and moves upward. Moving up, sebum mixes with skin bacteria and dead skin cells. With an increase in sebum production, probability of the hair follicles blockage and appearance of comedones also increases.

• Changes in the Follicle

With the increase in androgen production and expansion of the sebaceous glands hair follicle structure extending down under the skin, is also transformed. As a rule, the dead cells are separated and gradually moved away from the skin surface. In adolescence cells die more often and are more likely to stick together, and mixed with sebum can clog follicles. In this case, sebum and dead cells form a blockage of the follicles.

After exercise, wash your face to clear the accumulated grease and sweat, which create a favorable environment for bacteria. Otherwise, it may increase the number of acne.
