What Is Acne?

So What Is Acne Exactly?

It’s easy to see whether or not someone has acne, but do you really know what acne is? Many people assume acne is a result of poor hygiene. This actually isn’t the case. To sum it up, acne occurs when your skin’s pores become clogged or aren’t able to operate properly. This can happen for a number of reasons. We’ll go over some of the most common ones below.

What Causes Acne?

When you see a blemish, it means that the pore where that blemish resides has been clogged. There are a number of things that can lead to clogged pores, especially an excess production of oil. Excess oil production can be a result of a hormonal imbalance, food sensitivity, excessive stress and vitamin deficiencies. If one of these things is causing acne, the acne can usually be alleviated by remedying the problem.

By now you should know that acne is caused from the inside, not the outside. Because of this, acne treatments should really be approached from the inside as well. A great free e-course that goes into the internal treatments of acne can be found at this acne treatment website.
