Whether in the form of blackheads, pimples, or pimples, many of us suffer from some blemish on the skin related to acne. Today we tell you why acne appears and we tell you some tips so you can learn how to help prevent acne and how to help reduce it.
What is acne?
Acne is a very common chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous follicle that manifests itself mainly with excess sebum on the skin. The sebum clogs the pore and forms the open comedo – known as a blackhead, because the sebum oxidizes in contact with the air and darkens – or the closed comedo – known as a pimple. When the C. acnes bacterium colonizes the closed comedo, an inflammatory lesion is formed that we colloquially identify as a pimple.
Why does acne appear?
Stress, hormonal changes, a high sugar diet, or using cosmetics that are not for acne-prone skin can be some of the causes that are causing blackheads, pimples, or skin imperfections. The origin of acne is multifactorial, it can be due to all these factors:
· Hormonal changes
High sugar diet
Inappropriate beauty routine
