<b>Acne- the causes of acne formation</b>

The main cause of acne formation is excess sebum production. The sebum is produced
by sebaceous glands that are attached to hair follicles. This sebum protects our
skin from infection and dryness. During young years hormones bring about many
changes in the body. These hormones activate the sebaceous glands to produce more
of sebum.

<b>Sebaceous glands and acne-</b>

Imagine of a balloon. If you keep it filling, it will expand and then burst.
Something similar happens to the sebaceous glands. The hormonal activity also
blocks the pores that allow sebum to come out on the skin surface. So you now have
a gland that is blocked from the top and filled with sebum. The bacteria P.acnes
takes advantage of this and multiplies in the sebum and infects it. You get
inflamed acne as the gland bursts under pressure. As the hormones are at peak
during the adolescent years, acne forms most during this period. A young person can
develop many types of acne.

<b>Acne- effect on adolescents</b>

Acne spots affect the psychology of the young people. They suffer in confidence and
are doubtful about developing relationships. It is important that adolescents be
guided properly about their acne and treated as soon as possible.
