Clinically, acne is a disorder in the pilosebaceous units (PSU) found under the surface of the skin. PSUs are widely distributed all over the body especially in the chest, upper back and the face. Acne breakouts come about as a result of hormonal activities and other substances on the skin's oil glands or sebaceous glands found in these PSUs. As a result, clogged pores and outbreaks of lesions basically known as pimples appear on the skin. These lesions typically appear on the face, neck, back, chest and even on the shoulders, since these areas of the body are where PSUs are most numerous.
The sebaceous glands found beneath the skin produces an oily substance called sebum. Sebum is naturally emptied out by way of the follicles' opening called pores. The hair, sebum and the cells called keratinocytes coating the follicles can clog the follicles disabling the sebum to be emptied out through the pore. P. acnes is a type of bacteria normally found in the skin and thrives in the clogged environment with the presence of sebum and cells. P.acnes then attracts white blood cells and causes an inflammation which is characteristic to injured tissues in the skin. When the clogged follicle's walls break down, the mixture of oil, skin cells and bacteria is spilled into the nearby skin resulting to lesions which we refer to as zits or pimples. Other varieties of lesions produced include blackheads, whiteheads, nodules and cysts.
Experts confer that acne is caused by an interplay of related factors such as the increase of sex hormones called androgen. Androgen production is at its peak during puberty, thus, the scourge of acne during the teenage years. Genetics and hormonal changes before and during menstruation as well as during pregnancy are also other factors contributing to the development of acne. Several factors are also believed to worsen acne flares. Excess oil due to the use of moisturizers, environmental aggressors such as pollution and humidity, stress and pressure in the skin due to vigorous rubbing are also related to acne breakouts.
Although mostly teenagers are the hardest hit, acne can still affect people of all ages and races. About 80% of people from ages 11 to 30 are subjected to varied forms of acne outbreaks, according to the National Institute of Health. Acne breakouts are most common in adolescents and young adults, though.
