The Reasons You May Have Pimples On Your Face

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.

What are the risk factors for developing acne?

Stories and myths about what leads to acne are usually common. Lots of individuals believe that foods like chocolate or French fries can lead to developing acne. Although there is no scientific support for these beliefs, there are some risk factors for developing acne and they include the following:

-Hormonal changes that is caused by puberty or pregnancy.

-Some medications like some certain birth control pills or corticosteroids.

-Having a diet high in refined sugars or carbohydrates such as bread and chips.

-Having parents who had acne.

Some individuals are more at risk for developing acne during puberty. In this period, your body undergoes hormonal changes. These changes can also trigger oil production, resulting to an increased risk of developing acne. Hormonal acne related to puberty normally reduces or sometimes improves when you get to adulthood.
