Acne Pimples

Inside the pore are sebaceous glands which produce sebum. When the outer layers of skin shed (as they do continuously), the dead skin cells left behind may become “glued” together by the sebum. This causes a blockage in the pore, especially when the skin becomes thicker at puberty.

The sebaceous glands produce more sebum which builds up behind the blockage, and this sebum allows bacteria to grow, including the species Staphylococcus aureus and Propionibacterium acnes, which causes inflammation and infection. Damn it is.

Acne Scars

Acne scars are caused by inflammation within the dermal layer of skin and are estimated to affect 95% of people with acne vulgaris.The scar is created by abnormal healing following this dermal inflammation.

Scarring is most likely to take place with severe acne but may occur with any form of acne vulgaris. Acne scars are classified based on whether the abnormal healing response following dermal inflammation leads to excess collagen deposition or loss at the site of the acne lesion.

Scars can be sexy for girls. So take a breath of relief now and hold it.

Blackheads & Whiteheads

Oxidation rather than poor hygiene or dirt causes blackheads to be black. Washing or scrubbing the skin too much could make it worse, by irritating the skin. Touching and picking at comedones might cause irritation and spread infection. It is not clear what effect shaving has on the development of comedones or acne.

A blackhead/whitehead or else “comedo” is a clogged hair follicle (pore) in the skin. Keratin (skin debris) combines with oil to block the follicle. A comedo can be open (blackhead) or closed by skin (whitehead), and occur with or without acne. The word comedo comes from the Latin “comedere”, meaning “to eat up”.

It was historically used to describe parasitic worms; in modern medical terminology, it is used to suggest the worm-like appearance of the expressed material. Fun right?
