Acne is an attack of the 21st century that many girls suffer from. How to deal with it? Let’s take it in order.
Acne (Latin for “distorted”) is a skin disease that affects the sebaceous glands. When the glands function normally, the secret rises through the ducts to the surface of the skin and exits through the pore. In case of violations, the exit from the gland is clogged and the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria are activated, resulting in inflammation.
As a result, camedones are formed on the skin – open and closed. It is worth noting that Propionibacterium acnes and other bacteria do not cause skin diseases in most of us – they are considered representatives of the normal microflora. They show their negative impact only if the follicle is blocked and the sebaceous glands are hyperactive.
Why is this happening?
The exact cause of the strange behavior of cells is still not revealed to this day. However, there are certain factors of influence, without which the appearance of acne can not do.
- Genetic inheritance
- Hormonal status
- Failure of the immune system
It should be borne in mind that any changes in the level of hormones, whether it is pregnancy or menstrual disorders, contribute to changes in the work of the sebaceous glands. In addition, the skin of women who smoke is more prone to acne.
