Acne (also known as acne vulgaris, pimples, zits,blackheads, whiteheads) is a common skin problem. Acne is usually seen on the face but may also occur on the chest and back. It is an inflammatory disease of the hair follicle/oil gland and occurs when oils (sebum) are over produced by active glands especially during puberty, or other phases when we’re under the influence of increased and fluctuating hormone levels.
In addition to the excess oil production, build up of skin cells block follicles to cause blackheads and/or whiteheads. The presence of bacteria then leads to the development of inflamed bumps, pustules or cysts. Factors such as diet, sweating, stress, occupation and UV exposure may influence acne in some individuals.
Aside from the obvious inflammation, the side effects of acne can be significant and include, acne scarring and psychological effect to your self esteem.
