Learn all about Acne

Acne is a skin problem which creates blemishes and spots on the skin. Acne refers to: black-heads (open comedones), white-heads (closed comedones) and pus-filled spots (pustules). Acne is a condition usually starting at puberty, although, it is also seen as most common problem with adults.

There can be different kinds of acne problems, including a few spots on face, back and chest. Acne can lead to severe scarring, sometimes permanent. In case of persistent acne problems,  home remedies often may not work and a proper acne treatment under the expertise of a specialist consultant is needed. It is often crucial to treat acne, as it is known to have major effects on self-confidence and cause nasty scarring.

Causes of Acne

Acne is more persistent in nature than pimples, which are caused when the oil glands secrete oily substance, sebum to plug with dead skin cells. Acne includes redness and soreness also. Mainly a hormonal disease, acne also has various other factors for its development. It may be caused by stress, anxiety, improper diet, pollution, dirt exposure, oil based cosmetic use, intake of some medications and more. It is a myth to say that the consumption of chocolates and greasy foods promotes acne; unless when greasy foods are consumed in excess.
