They say it’s merely hormones. Then some traditionalists say that it is caused by eating too much “heaty food” like chocolates and chillies. Beauticians said it’s the way a face is cleansed at the end of the day. With acne comes the scars, those stubborn and ugly spots that can appear if it is left untreated or not treated well.
Acne occurs when too much sebum (an oily or waxy matter) forms a plug with dead skin cells in follicles of the skin. The follicle of a sebaceous gland then becomes blocked and pimple forms. Although it is not dangerous, it may have a significant impact on self-esteem especially if it covers most of a person’s face. Furthermore, scars that are left behind may become a source of unhappiness in the future.
