How to Identify and Help Prevent Acne
What Is Acne?
Acne is relatively easy to identify. It is classified as a skin condition that occurs when hair follicles get plugged with oil (sebum) and dead skin cells. It can take on many forms, from a singular blackhead to a cluster of pustules (pimples), and it most commonly appears on the face, neck, back, chest, or shoulders.
What Causes Acne?
There is no definitive answer regarding what causes acne. Most doctors believe hormone shifts during puberty are one source, although it is also normal to experience acne as an adult. Genetics is also believed to play a role in causing people to be more prone to acne. While the cause of acne is not totally understood, oil buildup along with germ interaction has been proven to worsen acne.
