Acne can happen when the pores of your skin becomes obstructed with oil, dead skin, or bacteria.
However, each pore of your skin is the opening to a follicle and this follicle consists of a hair and a sebaceous (oil) gland.
This oil gland produces sebum (oil), which moves up through the hair, out of the pore and onto your skin. The sebum (oil) can keep your skin lubricated and tender.
Various problems can occur and if it happens in the lubrication process, it can result to acne. These problems can happen when; too much oil is produced by your follicles, dead skin cells are stored in your pores and bacteria build up in your pores.
These problems can lead to the development of pimples. A pimple can appear when bacteria grows in a clogged pore and the oil is not able to get out.
