How does Acne occur?

Acne occurs when the pores on your skin become blocked with oil, dead skin, or bacteria.
Each pore on your skin is the opening to a follicle. The follicle is made up of a hair and a sebaceous (oil) gland. The oil gland releases sebum (oil), which travels up the hair, out of the pore, and onto your skin. The sebum keeps your skin lubricated and soft.
In this lubrication process, Acne can occur when:

  • Too much oil is produced by your follicles
  • Dead skin cells accumulate in your pores
  • Bacteria builds up in your pores

All of these problems contribute to the development of pimples. A zit appears when bacteria grows in a clogged pore and the oil is unable to escape.

What are some Factors that causes the Development of Acne?

Myths about what contributes to acne are quite common. Many people believe that foods such as chocolate or French fries will contribute to acne. While there’s no scientific support for these claims, there are certain factors that contributes to developing acne. These include:

  • Hormonal changes caused by puberty or pregnancy
  • Certain medications, such as certain birth control pills or corticosteroids
  • Sensitive to makeup items
  • A diet high in refined sugars or carbohydrates, such as bread and chips
  • Genetic- Having parents who had acne

Teenagers are most at risk for developing acne during puberty. During this time, your body undergoes drastic hormonal changes. These changes can trigger oil production, leading to an increased risk of acne. Hormonal acne related to puberty usually subsides or at least improves when you reach adulthood.

What can you do to Minimize Acne Breakouts?

You can use a number of self-care to minimize acne breakouts.
