ACNE SYMPTOMS AND CAUSES
Skin with acne is characterised by the presence of pimples and comedones, which can be open (blackhead) or closed (whitehead). It is an inflammatory process, which develops in the hair follicles of the sebaceous glands. The sebum produced by the glands starts to obstruct the glands, which creates inflammation and the appearance of blackheads and pimples. In case of moderate and severe acne the skin can present redness, papules and inflamed pimples. Acneic skin can appear on the face, neck, breast, shoulders and back. If the face also presents a lot of redness, you should follow the treatment of rosacea or rosacea with acne.
Oily skin is a common condition among teenagers, which is often accompanied by acne. At the end of the adolescence the hormonal levels stabilise and as a result the hyperactivity of the sebaceous glands ceases and the sebum production returns to normal. People who suffered teenage acne may continue to have oily skin as adults and the symptoms that come with it (pimples and enlarged pores especially on the nose and chin). It is crucial to keep the skin perfectly purified, hydrated and nourished. Squeezing the pimples should be avoided at all cost as it can create scars and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Nutrition, emotional stress and hormones are important factors that need to be taken into account when treating acneic skin.
