The human skin especially our face, chest, neck and back is covered by hundreds of thousands of microscopic hair follicles often called pores. Due to some reasons (still under scientific research), these follicles sometimes overproduce cells and become blocked. The sebum oil that usually drains to the surface gets trapped, and bacteria begin to grow. This makes the starting point for the development of acne.
What is acne?
Acne is a type of inflammatory skin condition which occurs when the hair follicles get plugged on oil and the dead skin cells. They typically appear on the face, back, chest and shoulders. They can be persistent as these pimples or bumps heal slowly. When one acne starts to fade away, other starts to show up. A whitehead acne type occurs when the trapped sebum and bacteria stay below the skin. A blackhead acne typically occurs when the pore opens to the skin surface and the sebum (which contains melanin skin pigment) oxides and turns black/brown.

Skin cells are always replacing themselves, making a journey from the inner edge of your epidermis to the outside of your skin. Acne is not that dangerous but can leave skin scars. In most cases, they occur during puberty. Treatment depends on how severe and persistent it is. Menstrual cycles, stress, anxiety, hot and humid climates, oil based makeups and pimple squeezing are all common known causes of acne.
