Acne is a common skin condition caused by the p.acnes Bacteria – naturally occurring on all skins but acne skins have a higher concentration of p.acnes which have buried into the follicle causing at first, comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and then later more cystic pus-filled spots (pustules).

Acne occurs when pores become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, debris and bacteria. The skin pores are actually openings of hair follicles which contain the sebaceous glands. These produce an oily substance called sebum, acting as a skin lubricant. When the sebaceous glands overproduce oil along and pores get clogged, acne develops.

The main risk factors for acne are hormonal changes or imbalances, medication and diet. Acne can also be hereditary and many of those who develop the condition have a family history of acne.

Acne usually appears on the face and neck but can also be a nuisance on the back too.
