Introduction

The sudden onset of a ‘zit’ before a date is every teenager’s nightmare. Most teenagers – and a large percentage of adults – suffer from Acne Vulgaris, which can shows up as whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples on the face, neck, shoulders, back, and chest. A recent study conducted in the USA revealed that 17 million people suffer from acne, spawning a large market for anti-acne products.

Causes

Skin pores contain oil glands which keep the skin and hair lubricated. Sometimes, these sebaceous pores become clogged with excess oil and bacteria, resulting in acne. Broadly, the causes of acne may be the following:

  • Bacteria, which easily infects oil glands and pores
  • Wrong diet, irregular meals, excessive intake of starches, sugar, and fatty foods
  • Chronic constipation
  • Hormonal activity, particularly in teenagers
  • Incorrect use of cosmetics that clog the pores
  • Genes
