What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition characterised by the presence of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and sometimes deeper cysts or nodules. It occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the growth of bacteria and inflammation.

Several factors contribute to the development of acne, including hormonal changes, excess oil production, bacteria on the skin, genetics, certain medications, and lifestyle factors such as diet and stress.

Hormonal fluctuations, particularly during puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy, play a significant role in triggering acne breakouts.

Additionally, high levels of androgens, the male hormones present in both males and females, can stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more oil, contributing to the formation of acne lesions.
