What is acne? It is a skin condition that causes pimple or “zits” that mostly occur to teenagers. Its causes are hormonal, psychological, infectious, or diet. Usually, it starts in puberty, but anyone including adults and babies can get them too. Acne is mostly due to our skin’s reaction to hormonal changes. Hormonal changes are those related to puberty, menstrual periods, and pregnancy. Physiological or psychological aspects like birth control pills, stress, greasy or oily cosmetic and high levels of humidity and sweating also contribute to having it. Infectious acne is caused by the anaerobic bacterium (Propionibacterium acne, P. acnes). Diets which include high glycemic loads are observed with worsening acne. But the most common reason in having acne is that our skin contains sebaceous glands that naturally release sebum, an oily substance that helps protect it.As puberty occurs, high levels of testosterone (the principal male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid) can cause an overproduction of sebum. The sebum blocks hair follicles and the tiny holes on the surface of our skin (pores). Dead skin cells mixing with the blockages can lead to the formation of spots. Bacteria present in our skin which can cause pain, swelling or inflammation multiply beneath the blockages and produces different kind of acne spots. People who have these acne spots stress to find acne treatments that work.

Washing your face about twice each day - not more often. Make sure you have a mild soap. Use warm water. Wash gently; do not scrub the skin. Experts advise the use of an OTC lotion which contains benzoyl peroxide .
