Acne is considered to be the most frequent skin condition worldwide.
Majority of us experience pimples at some stages of our lifespan due to the active hormones in our bodies. According to studies, teenagers are the most affected especially during puberty period, while only 5% of Adults get acne.
Acne is characterized by red bumps/ pop up that appears on the skin which mostly appears on the face, chest or even at the back.
Acne is caused by a bacterial infection that happens when the skin pores become clogged due to the excess production of sebum in the body.
As much people may consider acne/ pimples as a simple or normal skin condition, it is quite complex. Acne is caused by a complex interaction of changing hormones and due to its complexity, it may not go away using home remedies methods such as washing your face more often or taking in plenty of water or fruits and so on, therefore we recommend seeking a dermatologist's advice.
Excess testosterone/estrogen is the major cause of acne/pimples. Excess testosterone produces an excess production of sebum and for it to be excreted from the body, the skin gets rid of it with cystic breakouts.
Acne can also be hereditary whereby if either or both of your parents suffered severe acne there is a high chance of getting chronic acne.
Some cosmetics and skin care products application may trigger acne since they clog the skin pores. It is therefore vital to check the ingredients and select only those that have high water content.
