Author : Jared Wright

Many people are confused on what brands of acne products to use since there are a lot of acne management products available today. Thankfully, today, we are not blindfolded anymore. There are various resources to obtain acne related information as well.

Definition of Acne

Acne is a common skin disorder that affects men and women of every nation. Acne is described as blackheads, whiteheads, comedones, papules, pimples and nodular cysts. The last one is the most painful of all.

Furthermore, acne is caused by several factors such as heredity or genetics, stress, hormonal imbalance, environmental factors, dirt, and more.

How Acne Develops

The sebaceous gland (found beneath the surface of the skin) produces oil called sebum. Sebum maintains the skin's natural moisture. When the sebaceous gland is over stimulated it produces excessive amount of sebum, making the skin very oily. Oil when combined with dead skin, forms a hard plug called comedo. This hard plug can block the skin pores. Additional blockage of the skin follicles can contribute to the development of whiteheads and blackheads.
