What is the main cause of acne?
Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. The main cause of acne is believed to be a combination of several factors, including:
Excess oil production (sebum): Sebaceous glands in the skin produce an oily substance called sebum, which helps to lubricate and protect the skin. However, in some individuals, these glands can produce an excessive amount of sebum, leading to clogged pores and acne development.
Bacteria: The skin naturally harbors bacteria, including Propionibacterium acnes, which can thrive in clogged hair follicles. These bacteria can contribute to inflammation and worsen acne.
Dead skin cells: As the skin cells lining the hair follicles shed, they can mix with the excess sebum, forming a plug that blocks the follicle and causes a whitehead or blackhead.
Hormones: Hormonal fluctuations, commonly associated with puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and other factors, can increase sebum production and influence the development of acne. Androgens (male hormones), in particular, play a significant role in this process.
Inflammation: When a hair follicle becomes blocked, it can lead to inflammation as the body's immune response tries to clear the clogged pore. Inflammatory acne can result in red, swollen, and painful breakouts.
Diet and lifestyle: While the direct link is not entirely clear, some studies suggest that certain dietary factors (such as high glycemic index foods and dairy products) and lifestyle choices (like stress and smoking) might influence acne development in some individuals.
