Due to its conspicuous nature, acne can be a particularly frustrating concern that also affects a person’s confidence. This condition doesn’t refer to a single, isolated spot that appears now and then, it describes a wider coverage of pimples, blackheads and whiteheads that can occur regularly. Due to the frequency of flare-ups, acne can be damaging to the skin and tissues. This can also result in scarring, inflammation and discoloured areas of skin.
A combination of factors will cause the development of spots on the skin including excess oil, old skin cells and surface dirt can become lodged in the pores. When this mixes with the natural bacteria that lives on the skin, it can cause the development of pus and spots appear.
Although acne is common in adolescents, it can also affect many adults, especially during times like the menopause and pregnancy. Hormones are responsible for the production of oil (sebum), so when they fluctuate more oil can be present on the skin. The face, shoulders, chest and back are areas where acne is more likely to develop than other areas on the body as these places contain more oil glands.
