Plant Power Vs Acne

The Root Cause of Acne

What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells.


Acne can cause whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, papules, pustules, nodules or cysts and usually appears on the face and forehead.


Depending on its severity, acne can cause emotional distress and scar the skin permanently. 

How Acne Happens

Sebaceous glands are small glands found near the surface of your skin, which are attached to hair follicles. These glands produce an oily substance called sebum, to lubricate the hair and skin.

In acne, these glands begin to produce too much sebum. The excess sebum mixes with dead skin cells and both substances form a plug in the follicle.


The normally harmless bacteria that live on the skin can then contaminate and infect the plugged follicles.
