What is Acne?
Acne is an infection of the skin, caused by changes in the sebaceous glands. The most common form of acne is known as acne vulgaris. Never underestimate acne development as it may lead to scarring. Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excessive sebum production and dead skin cells. Sebum clogged in the blocked pores, leads to rapid bacteria growth and infection. The skin infection consequently causes the skin to become visibly swollen and red. The swollen pores, causing a break in the follicle wall to form shallow lesions which are usually easy to heal. However, when there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, infected material could spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions causing depressed scars.
The skin exposure on our face, chest, back, and upper arms are more prone to acne occurrence. Acne is a common phenomenon during puberty due to the rising level of androgen hormone when a child matures into adulthood. Further the psychological adverse effects of acne include lower self-esteem, social withdrawal which eventually lead to depression. However, acne becomes less active as aging progresses.

What causes the formation of blackheads and whiteheads?
A blackhead is a yellow or blackish bump appearing on the skin. A blackhead is a type of acne vulgaris. Contrary to the common belief that it is caused by poor hygiene, blackheads are predominantly caused by excessive sebum production accumulated in the oil gland ducts. The substance found in these bumps mostly consists of keratin and modified sebum (an oily secretion of the sebaceous gland), which darkens as it oxidizes. In contrast, whitehead is a follicle that is filled with the same material, sebum, but lacks a microscopic opening to the skin surface. As the follicle is not exposed to the air, the material is not oxidized, and remains white.
Regardless of having severe acne, blackheads, or whiteheads, we would still opt for the most suitable and effective treatment for you. It is incredibly important to treat your acne, especially during the early stage; failing to treat these clogged pores might lead to long-term acne vulgaris in which your skin will be exposed to more breakouts and vulnerable to scarring which may potentially affect your overall health.
