Why you get acne?

Your skin has tiny holes called pores that can become blocked by oil, dirt, bacteria and dead skin cells. When this happens, you may develop a pimple or zit. If your skin is frequently affected by this condition, you may have acne.

Each pore of your skin is the opening to a follicle. The follicle is made up of a hair and a sebaceous (oil) gland. The oil gland releases sebum (oil), which travels up the hair on to your skin. The sebum keeps your skin lubricated and soft.

One or more problems in this lubrication process can cause acne. It can occur when:

  • too much oil is produced by your follicles
  • dead skin cells accumulate in your pores
  • bacteria build up in your pores

What care is needed?

These are a few self-care activities you can try at home to prevent pimples and clear up your acne:

  • Clean your skin daily with a mild soap to remove excess oil and dirt
  • Do not touch your face
  • Clean your hair regularly and keep it out of your face
  • Avoid squeezing and picking pimples, it can spread bacteria and excess oil
  • Avoid wearing hats or tight headbands
  • Use makeup that’s water-based or labeled “noncomedogenic” (not pore-clogging)


  • Hormonal changes caused due to puberty or pregnancy
  • Some medications, such as certain birth control pills or corticosteroids
  • A diet high in refined sugars or carbohydrates
  • Genetics


People cannot treat moderate-to-severe inflammatory acne at home. They require care from a dermatologist. The doctor can treat acne by using different products and procedures depending upon the type of acne. These include:

  • Topical Applications
  • Antibiotics
  • Chemical peels
  • Oral contraceptives for hormonal-related acne
  • Systematic retinoids
  • Steroid injections
  • Photodynamic therapy to combat bacteria
  • Drainage and extraction to remove large cysts
