+ What causes acne?
Acne is caused when tiny holes in the skin, known as hair follicles, become blocked. Sabaceous glands are tiny glands found near the surface of your skin. These glands lubricate the hair and the skin by producing sebum. In acne the glands produce too much sebum which forms a plug in the follicle. If the unplugged follicle is close to the surface of the skin, it bulges outwards creating a whitehead, Alternaitvley, the plugged follicle can be open to the skin, creating a blackhead. Normally harmless bacteria that live on the skin can then contaminate and infect the plugged follicles, causing papules, pustules, nodules or cysts.
+ Why do teenagers get acne?
Teenage acne is thought to be triggered by increased levels of a hormone called testosterone, which occurs during puberty. The sebaceous glands are particularly sensitive to hormones. Increased levels of testosterone cause the glands to produce much more sebum than the skin needs, which inturn causes spots.
