It can manifest itself in different ways:
Pimples are small prominences occurring in the skin, sometimes containing pus;
Blackheads formations are small, black, arising from the accumulation of a mixture of seborrhea and dead cells that block pores;
Points are small, white or flesh-colored factions, whether white, arising from the blocking of pores;
Cysts are formed either just under the skin, either more in depth and contains materials whose consistency is either liquid or semi-solid.
What are the areas prone to acne?
The most exposed areas of skin are those areas where there are most sebaceous glands: face, chest, shoulders and back. Acne can also be found on the arms or thighs, but cases are extremely rare.

Who is affected by acne?
Acne affects predominantly adolescents, due to the intense activity of specific hormonal puberty. Also, cases of acne are widespread in the case of individuals who show hypersecretion of sebaceous glands. So not only teenagers are facing this problem, but can affect children and elders as well.
An interesting problem is that acne seems to affect differently the opposite sex. Before puberty is more common among girls, during puberty, girls and boys are equally affected by acne, but more complicated cases are common in male individuals,

What factors are causing the acne?
Hyper secretion of sebaceous glands - sebaceous glands are located in the deep epidermis. Each of them is "connected" with a narrow channel, called follicle, where is located a hair. These glands produce an oily secretion known as sebum, which spreads to the skin surface through hair follicles, which lubricates them. Each follicle has an external opening (skin surface), which is called Por. Sebaceous gland size is variable, the biggest being associated with visible pores of the skin. Sebaceous glands are stimulated by hormones to secrete sebum - especially by male hormones are called androgens (which are found in a woman's body, but, naturally, in much smaller proportion than men). These hormones are produced by the ovaries, testes respectively. Also, both a woman's body, as well as men, the androgen hormones are produced by the adrenal glands. In periods marked by stress, these glands secrete an increased amount of androgens, causing the sebaceous glands and hypersecretion. Also, in puberty, sebaceous glands are overactive, as a result of hormonal changes of nature occurring in the body.

Pore blocking - due to hyper secretion of glands, skin gets a shiny appearance, the "oily" to the touch. Acne occurs when pores (through which the sebum flow - from the sebaceous glands to the skin surface) become blocked, and the secretion of sebum remains captive. Pores are blocked by an accumulation of dead cells and form seborrhea. The cause of this blockage is not known, but the consequences are not of a faulty hygiene. From blocked por, will develop a white or black point.

Bacterial infection - although acne is not caused by a bacterial infection, the bacteria can make the situation worse. The bacterium Propionibacterium acnes is found normally on the skin surface, serving as a protective barrier of skin against other harmful bacteria. When the secretion of sebum is captive in the follicles, the intake of bacteria Propionibacterium acnes increases at the level of the blocked pore. Harmful bacteria produce a number of chemical compounds that attack skin, causing inflammation and aggravating irritation.

Skin inflammation - is accompanied by symptoms such as skin redness, discomfort and warmth to the skin. Inflammation occurs as a result of the immune system attempt to reject a foreign substance - in this case either bacteria or irritating components of these products.

These four factors contribute to blocking the pores, which is manifested by
appearance of black spots, white, the blistering (known under the name of baskets) and cysts.

Blackheads are formed when pores are blocked, close to the skin. Usually are not inflamed, and their color is due to a black pigment - and not to the waste deposited in the pores.

Whiteheads develops as a result of a blockage occurred in the pore depth. In absence of drainage ways, the sebum accumulates in the skin, thus forming white or color points. Unlike blackheads, whiteheads presents a high probability of leading to the emergence of pimples.

Blistering (pimples) appear when the walls of blocked follicle breaks up. Sebum, dead cells and bacteria normally found in the skin surface and inside, irritated skin, forming small inflammation.

Cysts - are those bigger inflammation, red, located in the deep epidermis, indicating an infection located in a later stage.

Nutrition specialists recommend a diet as low in fat, cereal, bread and sweets. Increasing the amount of sugar in the blood, which is due to high consumption of foods mentioned, has as a consequence of hormonal changes that are stimulating the "preview" of the acne;

I think its happening because of the dust that is everywhere in our houses, offices and different types of manufactures. Also because people use to touch the face frequently with dirty hands, from here appears bacterias on the face and it brings to an inflammatory process.

It is important to remember some rules in preventing the appearance of the acne.
First of all you should not wash your face more than twice a day. The second is to not touch the face especially to squeeze or pick. Squeezing or picking your blemishes — with fingernails, pins or anything else — can force bacteria deeper into the skin, causing greater inflammation and infection.
