Acne can be caused my many factors, such as hormones, your diet, stress, and over production of oil from the sebaceous glands. When pores become blocked, for numerous reasons, acne bacteria starts to multiply and cause inflammation, redness and pimples.
Our skin has pores, which connect to the oil glands under the skin. The glands are connected to our pores via follicles (small canals. Sebum, an oily liquid, is produced by these glands. When these follicles are blocked, pimples occur.
If you do not help resolve the problem of acne, you may get skin scars. That may just be a pigmentation problem, or actually affect the texture of the skin.
