What is acne?
Acne is stubborn and persistent disorder that affects the skin’s oil glands and hair follicles. Pores connect to oil glands under the skin and these glands make an oily substance called sebum. Pores are connect to glands by a canal called a follicle. Inside these follicles, oil carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin. Hair also grows through the follicle and out to the skin. Sometimes, the hair, sebum, and skin cells clump together into a plug. The bacteria in the plug causes swelling, when the plug starts to break down a pimple grows.
Most pimples are found on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Acne is usually not a serious health threat, but it can cause scars if removed incorrectly. Before treating scars you must treat acne.
