Acne is a disease that affects the skin’s oil glands. These glands make an oily substance called sebum. The small holes in your skin (pores) connect to oil glands under the skin by a canal called a follicle.

The oil & dead skin cells are carried to the pores on the surface of the skin via the follicle. When the follicle gets clogged up, the oil & dead skin cells accumulate giving rise to a pimple – also known as acne. Besides face, acne can occur on shoulders, arms, chest, back and neck too.

Causes of Acne

Testosterone signals the body to make more sebum, the oil produced in the skin's oil glands. Excess sebum clogs the oil gland and a pimple grows. Bacteria could grow in these clogged follicles which cause pus, the most common bacteria is Propionibacterium acnes.

Other causes of acne  could be starting or stopping birth control pills, hormonal changes during pregnancy, PCOS, certain type of medicines, usage of low quality greasy cosmetics and Stress.
