There may be a lot of myths out there about what causes acne. While many of these statements can be
confusing for someone who is trying to deal with this skin problem, it is important to separate fact from
fiction. There are three major contributing factors to this skin problem, which include: oil in maximum
production of oil in the skin, irritation of the hair follicles because of abnormal and abundant dead skin cells
and the collection of bacteria in the skin.

 Many people deal with acne because the hair follicles of the skin have become clogged with oil and dead skin
cells. Each hair follicle is attached to a sebaceous gland, which emit oils. These oils function as lubricators to
your hair and skin.

 This oily substance moves along the hair shafts and out of the hair follicles for lubrication. When too much of
the oily substance is produced and mixes with dead skin cells they mesh together to form a clog. This begins
the formation of a skin condition.

 The pimple you see on your face is the result of this clog. It causes the follicle wall to expand and this is when
you see the white head of a pimple. On the other hand, the clog may be open to the skin's surface and cause a
blackhead.

 When these clogs happen deep within the hair follicle, much lower than right beneath the skin's surface,
lumps known as cysts are formed. These are often the red lumps that do not have a white or black head you
will notice with the formation of acne. So what about sweat glands? In comparison to the hair follicle, the
pores of sweat glands are not typically involved in skin conditions.

 It is not known what exactly causes the increased amount of oil in the follicles that lead to this skin condition.
However, there are few indications of these causes, which include hormone imbalances, bacteria, medications
and heredity. These are just a few of the indicated factors that increase the production of oil, or sebum, as it is
known in the medical community, in the hair follicles.

 Too often acne is wrongly associated with dirt. It is not a matter of cleanliness. In fact, scrubbing your face
too hard with harsh soaps can irritate the skin even further. Normal washing of the skin to remove extra oil or
dirt that may be found is enough for ordinary facial cleansing. If you find yourself seriously afflicted by this
skin condition, consult your doctor.
