Have you had enough of acne and the constant breakouts? Do you just want to have a normal skin without the embarrassing and confidence destroying cystic lumps? Are you longing for a clear skin that everyone else seems to show off? To effectively eliminate your acne it’s important to understand where it comes from in the first place. What triggers the condition and how can you prevent future breakouts. Let’s start at the basics. Where acne actually comes from?
Where acne comes from?
All acne comes from the very same place – your hair follicles. Your hair follicles are the small opening in your skin where the hair grows from. Each of the follicles consist of three main parts. These are the shaft, the hair and the final is the oil gland.
The follicle walls are lined by skin cells, that are replaced with new cells in every 28 days.
When you have acne, the cells lining the follicle walls produce too much keratin, which is a protein that was meant to protect your skin from damage. As a result fo excess of keratin your dead skin cells stick together, making them harder to expel from the follicle. These dead skin cells mixed with the oil produced by your glands can form a blockage in the hair follicle. This plug of cells and oil is how most acne begins.
In some cases the blockage can enter the follicles from outside, in the form of sweat, make up, oil, dirt or bacteria.
As the oil continues to flow from your glands, it can build up behind that blockage making it larger.
Bacteria that lives on your skin or inside your hair follicles find the oily blockage in ideal environment and can begin to multiple. As this blockage grows it can create a tear in the hair follicles wall. As a result white blood cells rush to help fight the bacteria in the blockage causing an inflammation of the surrounding skin and a pocket of puss to firm, which is made up of dead white blood cells, bacteria and other debris.
