Very Simple Explanation Of What Causes An Acne Blemish

  1. Oil glands are located in the hair follicle.

  2. Hormone fluctuations cause the skin to produce more oil.

  3. The oil bonds with dead skin cells and clogs the opening of the hair follicle.

  4. Oil continues to be produced, but since it cannot escape, the follicle swells with oil.

  5. In addition, a normal skin bacteria (P. acnes) begins to multiply rapidly in the clogged follicle, causing inflammation.
