WHAT IS ACNE?

If there's one thing you can count on as a young adult, it's acne. More than 85% of young adults suffer from this skin problem, which is marked by clogged pores (whiteheads, blackheads), painful pimples, and sometimes, hard and deep lumps on the face, neck, shoulders, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms.

WHAT CAUSES ACNE?

PORES in your skin contain oil glands. Excess hormones cause the oil glands to become overactive, enlarge, and produce too much oil, or sebum. When there is too much sebum, the pores or hair follicles become blocked with skin cells. The increase in oil also results in an overgrowth of bacteria.

CLOGGED PORES, closes, and then bulges, you have a whitehead. A blackhead occurs when the pore clogs, stays open, and the top has a blackish appearance due to oxidation or exposure to air.

BACTERIA grow in the blocked pore, a pustule may appear, meaning the pimple becomes red and inflamed. Cysts form when the blockage and inflammation deep inside pores produce large, painful lumps beneath the skin's surface.

HORMONAL changes related to birth control pills, menstrual periods, and pregnancy can trigger acne. Other external acne triggers include heavy face creams and cosmetic, hair dyes, and greasy hair ointment -- all of which can increase blockage of pores.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ACNE ?

While the symptoms vary in severity, you will notice these signs on areas of the body with the most oil glands (the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms).

The least severe type of acne lesion is the whitehead or blackhead. This type is also the most easily treated.
