The Cause of Acne

Posted in Acne at 11:27 am


Acne usually starts during puberty, the body start to go through hormonal changes. The glands seem to produce too much oil and which leads to a plugging of the pores in our skin. The pores that are now plugged start to be become infected. The infection look like reddish bumps, which and may contain pus, the by-product of the infection.

Not only does our own body do this but we also can help promote the acne. Sometimes the treatments we seek may cause more acne then we had to start with. Makeup can also lead to acne. The diet we have may lead to acne, by the lack of water intake may throw off the natural pH level of our skin. Even some of the hair products we may use on a daily basis can be a contributor to acne, items such as: hairspray, gels, conditioners, all may clog pores.

More in a Medical term of what happens:

Acne caused by three main factors. Abnormal keratinization of the lining of the sebaceous gland caused by androgen stimulation, resulting in plugging of the gland; Increased production of sebum by the sebaceous gland due to androgen stimulation; A bacterium Propionibacterium acnes proliferates within the gland and modifies the sebum. Propionibacterium acne is a bacterium normally found on the skin.
