What is Acne?
Acne vulgaris is a very common skin disorder of the pilosebaceous unit, an oil gland connected to hair follicles. Overstimulation of this gland leads to increased production of an oil called sebum. This oil is responsible for lubrication and waterproofing of the skin and the hair.
Who gets Acne?
Acne affects both sexes equally and can affect almost anyone at different stages of life. Depending on your genetic predisposition and your lifestyle, acne can develop as early as six years old or may not appear until well after your 20’s. Some might even develop hormonal acne in their 40’s!
How does it develop?
Acne development consists of four key elements:
- follicular epidermal hyperproliferation
- excess sebum production
- the presence and activity of bacterium Propionibacterium acnes
