What causes acne to form?
Acne forms when the sebaceous glands become inflamed and infected. There are many types of acne including whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, and cysts. Whiteheads and blackheads are considered comedones – clogged pores filled with sebum and dead skin cells. Pustules are inflamed, pus-filled pores and are what people typically envision acne to look like. Cysts are large lesions found underneath the skin where bacteria and debris have collected. Cysts are often painful and can last weeks. Regardless of what type of acne you suffer from, treating the lesions can make you more confident and bolster your self-esteem.
