Condition : Acne and Scars

The acne is probably the most common skin condition in adolescents and adults. This skin condition may be the cause of many psychological problems, including shyness, low self-esteem, shame, anxiety, and difficulties on the love and friendship front. During adolescence, the effects can be devastating because this is the period of life where one builds self-esteem.

 

The skin contains an oily substance called sebum that is secreted through hair follicle pores. An excessive amount of sebum makes the skin oily which combined with dead skin cells can clog up these pores. This obstruction prevents sebum from coming out of the skin, which leads to the formation of blackheads or whiteheads as well as the proliferation of bacteria causing inflammation and those pimples that characterize acne. Hormonal changes during adolescence cause, among other things, an increased secretion of sebum that explains the high prevalence of acne during this crucial period of life.
