Acne is one of the most common skin problems faced by the persons especially the teenagers. The tiny pores present on the skin surface connect to the oil glands present under the skin. These tiny glands produce a sticky and oily substance which is known as sebum. When the pores clog up due to dust particles, oil, dead skin cells, etc. a pimple grows on the skin surface. Mostly the pimples appear on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Acne is not a serious disease, but it causes scars.
Common Types of Pimples are whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules, cysts, etc. The main cause of acne is the hormonal change in the teenagers, hormone changes during the pregnancy, starting or stopping the use of birth control pills, heredity and greasy makeup etc.
