Acne in Teens
*This information provides a general overview on this topic and may not apply to everyone. To find out if this information applies to you and to get more information on this subject, talk to your skincare specialist.
What causes acne?
Most people who get acne start having it in their early teens. This is when the oil glands in the body start making more sebum (oil). Some people also have too many "sticky" skin cells. In people with acne, these cells mix with the oil and plug up the hair follicles in the skin.
These plugs trap bacteria (germs) in the follicles, which can cause the follicles to swell. Tender red bumps are the result. In acne, what start as small red bumps can turn into pimples and even cysts.
Things that can make acne worse
Oil-based makeup, suntan oil, hair gels and sprays, and oils from machinerys or cooking
Stress and strong feelings like guilt, fear, and being nervous
Periods in women
Squeezing or picking at pimples
Scrubbing the skin hard
Who gets acne?
Anyone can get acne. But it may be worse in young men because they have more skin oils. Other things also affect how bad your acne gets.
Heredity (your genes) plays a role. If your mother and father had bad acne, you may too. Your immune system also plays a role. Some people are more likely to get the bacteria trapped in the hair follicles. This can cause very bad acne. Foods don't seem to be related to acne, but if you feel that some foods make your acne worse, you may want to avoid those foods.
What kinds of changes are there?
A whitehead results when the follicle is plugged with sebum and skin cells. If this plug reaches the surface of the skin and the air touches it, it turns black and is called a blackhead. A blackhead is not caused by dirt. If the wall of the plugged follicle breaks, the area swells and turns into a red bump. If the follicle wall breaks near the skin surface, the bump usually becomes a pimple. If the wall breaks deeper under the skin, acne nodules or cysts can form. This is called cystic acne. It is the type most likely to lead to scars.
