Problematic Skin | Acne & Blemish-prone Skin
Acne occurs when a pore or hair follicle becomes clogged with natural sebum and dead skin cells. Problematic skin is a non-contagious skin condition characterised by pimples caused by inflamed and infected sebaceous glands. Blemish-prone skin is skin that has a potential to develop comedones and pimples. It is often oily and appears shiny. This is because the sebaceous glands produce more sebum than in other skin types.
Bacteria – known as Propionibacterium – lives in the skin. When this bacteria enters and infects the clogged pores, it causes inflammation. There are different types of acne: Non-inflammatory acne such as whiteheads (closed comedones) and blackheads (open comedones). Inflammatory acne types such as papules, pustules (pimples), nodules and cysts.
Acne typically appears on the face, neck, shoulders, chest and back and ranges in serverity from light through moderate to severe Acne.
Understanding Problematic Skin | Acne Blemish-prone Skin
Genetics, hormones, incorrect use of skincare products, hygiene, stress, sleep patterns, medication, sun exposure or smoking are the main factors that affect the acne.

The pore or follicle swells due to the accumulation of excess oil, impurities and bacteria which forces the follicle wall to break.
