We will all get acne on our face at least once during our lifetime, after all it's a common skin disorder. Acne affects people of all ages, but it is most common in young people, especially during early puberty.
The body begins to develop as we grow up and this causes an increase in hormones. These hormones stimulate the sebaceous glands to make more sebum and these glands can become overactive. The pores of the skin can become clogged with excess oil or sebum, and this is what causes acne.
Blackheads and whiteheads occur when plugs block the top layer of the pores.
When acne becomes inflamed the contents become hot and infected, causing the bacteria blockage to rupture through the skin's surface.
Correct medical treatment can treat acne, but there are things we can do to help prevent the causes and discomforts of acne.
Some outbreaks of acne might be the result of food allergies. Go a couple of weeks without the food you think might trigger your acne, and look for alternatives.
Soap can have harsh ingredients that dry out and irritate the skin, and this can lead to acne breakouts. Instead, try using a gentle cleanser for the face, making sure you don't scrub the skin too hard.
Try to stop touching your face. Throughout the day our hands accumulate dirt, germs and bacteria and it goes on the skin when we touch our face, causing it to clog up the pores. Popping and squeezing pimples will only make them worse because you're passing the bacteria from one part of the face to another.
