Acne is one of the most common skin conditions, effecting up to 80% of people aged 11 to 30. Acne occurs when the pores of your skin get blocked causing blackheads, whiteheads and other types of pimples. Pimples are bumps on your skin filled with pus which can sometimes be painful.
What caused acne:
Clogged hair follicles or pores cause acne. This can occur because of:
- Increased amounts of sebum (an oily substance which provides a protective barrier for your skin)
- Excess amounts of bacteria
- Dead skin cells being unable to clear and being stuck inside your hair follicles
