Acne also known as acne vulgaris occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. This is usually characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, papules, pustules, nodules, pimples or oily skin. The most common areas of the skin to be affected includes the face, upper chest and back (also known as bacne). These areas of the skin tend to have a relatively high number of oil glands.
There are many reasons for the appearance of acne breakouts. Puberty is one of the more common reasons amongst teenagers as there’s an increase in hormones. But this skin condition, can affect in adults too. One should wash their makeup brushes regularly as they harbour dirt and bacteria that can cause breakouts. It’s also important to keep your smartphone bacteria-free. Germs from the phone land right on your cheek and jawline causing irritation and pimples. Last but not least, wash your face regularly. Always wash your face before bed to remove all the makeup, dirt and oil which can aggravate acne breakouts.
