Short intro on acne

When the follicles or pores in your skin get blocked for some reason, the sebum (oil) gets trapped inside. This makes a great place for bacteria to start growing, which in turn will lead to either or both whiteheads and blackheads. These two are non inflammatory

But it can also lead to more serious inflammatory acne types like cystic acne or nodular acne

The reasons why your pores get plugged are even now still not exactly determined. It is said that bad food habits, insufficient hygiene, stress and/ or especially male hormones (yes also in girls) play a role in the creation of acne. It could be one or a combination of these that is responsible for your acne outbreak
