Acne

As we all know acne can be stressing and depressing as well but #didyouknow, one of the
main causes of acne is stress! Along with eating and genetic disorders.
What is Acne or Pimples ?
It’s a painful and ugly looking skin condition characterized by red pimples on the skin,
especially on the face, due to inflamed or infected sebaceous glands and prevalent chiefly
among adolescents.

What causes acne?
So when the pores of your skin become blocked with oil, dead skin, or bacteria, it develops
an acne especially on the face but also on other body parts too. Each pore of your skin is the
opening to a follicle. The follicle is made up of a hair and a sebaceous (oil) gland.
What’s the Difference Between Acne and Pimples?
The ONLY difference between acne and pimples is that acne is a disease and pimples are
one of its symptoms. Acne is a condition affecting the skin’s hair follicles and oil glands.
Along with pimples, we use the term “breakout” used to describe all forms of acne, but this
isn’t always an accurate description. Not all types of acne spread across the skin.
Clogged pores cause acne itself. These may be attributed to:
● excess production of oil (sebum) (oily skin famously known as)
● bacteria
● hormones
● dead skin cells
● ingrown hairs
Identifying which type of acne you’re experiencing is key to successful treatment.

FunFact

Acne not only appears in the form of red painful spots but also has two categories explained
below.
Subtypes of acne within these two categories include:
Noninflammatory:
● Blackheads : occur when a pore is clogged by a combination of sebum and dead
skin cells. The top of the pore stays open, despite the rest of it being clogged.
● Whiteheads: form when a pore gets clogged by sebum and dead skin cells. But
unlike with blackheads, the top of the pore closes up. It looks like a small bump
protruding from the skin.
Inflammatory:
● Papules: occur when the walls surrounding your pores break down from severe
inflammation. This results in hard, clogged pores that are tender to the touch. The
skin around these pores is usually pink.
● Pustules: can also form when the walls around your pores break down. Unlike
papules, pustules are filled with pus. These bumps come out from the skin and are
usually red in color. They often have yellow or white heads on top.
● Nodules: occur when clogged, swollen pores endure further irritation and grow
larger. Unlike pustules and papules, nodules are deeper underneath the skin.

● Cysts: can develop when pores are clogged by a combination of bacteria, sebum,
and dead skin cells. The clogs occur deep within the skin and are further below the
surface than nodules.
As you have got good knowledge about acne and its types, iIt’s possible to have multiple
types of acne at once — some cases may even be severe enough to warrant a visit to the
dermatologist.
