Remedies To Prevent Acne

One of the most common skin conditions that people face is acne. Be it due to pollution or hormonal imbalance, 85 per cent of young adults suffer from this skin condition. Even people in their 30s sometimes face severe breakouts once in a while.

Acne starts when the pores of our skin get clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Sebaceous glands produce sebum. These glands are connected to each pore in our skin. But if these glands secrete extra sebum, the skin gets oily and it clogs the pores. This cause the growth of Propionibacterium acnes, or P. acnes. The white blood cells attack the bacteria which causes inflammation and acne on those parts. Common symptoms are blackheads and whiteheads.
