What causes Acne?


Acne is a single term used to address certain varieties of skin ailments. Acne's differ in severity depending on the type. When an excess of bacteria, dead skin cells and sebum block the hair follicles, acne is formed.


Here are some general causes of acne:


Hormonal changes: The hormonal levels show a fluctuation during the adolescent period. The skin produces an excess of sebum when the hormonal levels rise and this leads to an acne breakout.

Hereditary factors: Hereditary also has a role in acne development. If your parents or grandparents suffered from such an issue, you are more likely to go through it as well.

Tension and stress: While stress cannot be linked directly to skin problems, it does have an indirect effect on our skin as it triggers acne formation. Due to stress, our body releases hormones called androgens and cortisol, and the fluctuation of such hormones will lead to the production of oil in large quantities. This leads to acne development or breakout.


What are the different types of acne?

Non-inflammatory Acne:

Noninflammatory acnes are differentiated and described using comedones. There are open and closed comedones.

Blackheads: They are open comedones as their pores are open and are seen on the surface of the skin. The sebum inside the open pores oxidizes when in contact with the air, resulting in hardened sebum and the air mixing with melanin to form blackheads.
