What is acne? Why does it occur?


What is acne? Why does it occur?

Acne is a skin condition characterized by whiteheads, blackheads, and inflamed red pimples. Acne occurs when tiny holes on the surface of the skin called pores become clogged. Normally, the oil glands help keep the skin lubricated and help remove old skin cells. During adolescence the glands produce too much oil; the pores become blocked, accumulating dirt, debris, and bacteria resulting in production of blackheads and pimples.

How can the effects of acne be lessened?

Take the following self-care steps to lessen the effects of acne: (i) Clean your skin gently with a mild, non-drying soap.

(ii) Remove all dirt or make-up. Wash once or twice a day with fresh water, including after exercising. However, avoid excessive or repeated skin washing.


(iii) Shampoo your hair daily, especially if it's oily. Comb or pull your hair back to keep the hair out of your face. Avoid tight headbands.

(iv) Try not to squeeze, scratch, pick, or rub the pimples. Although it might be tempting to do this, it can lead to scarring and skin infections.

(v) Avoid touching your face with your hands or fingers.

(vi) Avoid greasy cosmetics or creams

(vii) If the pimples are still a problem, a doctor can prescribe stronger medications and discuss other options with you.
