What does a clogged pore have to do with acne? Everything!
A clogged pore is the start of acne. If your pores are not clogged, you WILL NOT HAVE acne. That’s the truth.
How It Happens
When your pores are clogged by a sticky mixture of facial oil, dead skin cells, and dirt, the sticky mixture can not get disposed because the pore is already clogged. When there is such an oily mixture in the pore, the bacteria which resides underneath the skin get active because it’s dinner time!
Proponium acnes, or p.acnes, is the type of bacteria that all of us have in our skins. The bacteria thrive on fats. When the bacteria start eating the fats of the sticky mixture, your immune system gets alarmed and send a troop of armies to fight off the infection. The truth is that these bacterias are harmless and this immune reaction is unnecessary and can be described as allergic.
When the immune system starts bombing the areas around your skin tissues, your pores get swollen. Voila, acne!
What Causes Clogged Pores
- Excessive production of sebum. The increased production of sebum is stimulated by a hormone known as testosterone.
- Increased skin shedding which leads to increased dead skin cells. This is usually caused by harsh chemicals from cleansers and creams.
