Causes of Acne
Acne typically appears on face, neck, chest, back and shoulders where most oil (sebaceous) glands are found. When hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells, acnes are formed. Excessive production of sebum and dead skin cells create an environment for bacterias to grow and causes inflammation.
When follicles are inflamed or infected, red spots with a white center developed. Blockages and inflammation that develop deep inside hair follicles produce cyst-like lumps beneath the surface of your skin.
