Cause To Acne

It has been that, more often males have the severe form of acne rather than females, due to their hormones. Normally the infected areas that tend to break out most frequently the back and chest are unfortunately more difficult to treat.
The real cause of acne can actually be a combination of several external as well as internal factors. Typically there are several steps that lead to blackheads, pimples, zits and minor skin blemishes. Diagnosis The main cause of acne, blackheads or zits is due to the blocking or clogging of hair follicles, more commonly know as pores.
Unfortunately the cause and combination of events that actually cause pores to become clogged is not fully known. There are many contributing elements for adults and teenagers alike, which can include hereditary factors such as whether or not there is a history of acne problems and if so, to what extent, hormones, dietary and vitamin supplemental intake and stress related factors. Other forces or events that can strongly cause the development of acne, blackheads, zits or pimples include the body’s normal function of eradicating itself of its dead skin cells. If this cycle gets out of whack or becomes irregular due to climate and other environmental forces or overall body health at the time it can cause the bodily hormones and their effect on the body’s sebum production to increase which is bad for the complexion but outstanding for breeding acne.
When the body’s function of shedding dead skin cells becomes irregular the normal dead skin cells that combine with the body’s natural sebum oil as it drains through the skin’s surface become clogged and cause blocked pores and thus, this substance becomes somewhat sticky, further clogging the passageway.Diagnosis This allows the cultivating and incubating of bacteria that begins to grow around these clogged areas. As a normal reaction of body’s white blood cells attack the bacteria, fighting it and pushing it out of the body. The outcome of this battle between the white blood cells and bacteria leads to a growth usually within 2 to 3 weeks. These types of growths are referred to as microcomedones. Microcomedones turn into comedones, which are more commonly referred to as acne, blemishes, zits or pimples.

As one can see the formation of acne is based on a series of events, which starts with the blocking of pores. The outcome is usually an increase in production of microcomedones which results in the very noticeable skin blemish known throughout the world as acne, blackheads, zits or pimples.
