What is Acne?
Your skin has tiny holes called pores that can become blocked by oil, bacteria, dead skin cells, and dirt. When this happens, you may develop a pimple or “zit.” If your skin is repeatedly affected by this condition, you may have acne! Acne is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that causes spots and pimples, especially on the face, shoulders, back, neck, chest, and upper arms.
If you have acne, just know that you’re not alone. Acne is a common skin condition that almost everyone experiences. An estimated 80% of people ages 11 to 30 will have at least a mild form of acne, and most people are affected by it at some point in their lives. We all have our stories with acne.
How Does Acne Look Like?
Blackheads are small black or yellowish bumps that develop on the skin; they're not filled with dirt, but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces colour.
Whiteheads have a similar appearance to blackheads, but may be firmer and will not empty when squeezed.
Papules have small red bumps that may feel tender or sore.
Similar to papules, but pustules have a white tip in the centre, that is caused by a build-up of pus.
Nodules are large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painful.
What Causes Acne?
There are a variety of causes for acne including genetics, fluctuating hormone levels, stress, high humidity, and using oily or greasy personal care products. Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become blocked with oil, dead skin, or bacteria.
Acne can occur on your skin when:
- Too much oil is produced by your follicles
- Dead skin cells accumulate in your pores
- Bacteria builds up in your pores
