Acne is skin eruptions that is caused by inflammation of sebaceous glands and proliferation of P. acne bacteria. It can range from mild occurrence of pink bumps on the skin to sore enlarged red bumps that can be pustular or cystic in nature. Poor acne control can make the eruptions more chronic and severe, often leading to permanent scarring.
Causes of acne can be multi-factorial. Most commonly it is due to hormonal imbalance like estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and cortisol. This interplay of hormones can be disrupted by factors like genetics, stress, unhealthy food choices of highly processed carbohydrates and sugars, individual food sensitivities and adverse effects of medications. Poor skin hygiene and misuse of skincare products can also exacerbate acne.
