How acne happens?
Acne happens to most people, no one is particularly immune.  When too much oil is produced by the sebaceous glands, it tends to pool in the hair follicle where heat and humidity breed an abnormal amount of bacteria, which is already on your skin every day, when the amount of bacteria overwhelm the space, the body reacts by activating your immune system which, in turn, causes the redness in the face as well as the “whiteheads” that are commonly seen.  There are two types of comedones or “zits”:

Whiteheads:  an infected hair follicle that has been overwhelmed with white blood cells (pus) which are fighting the infection from inside the body.  They are not open to air, so the material inside does not oxidize and remains white.

Black heads: comedones that have a wider than normal opening. They are filled with plugs of sebum and sloughed off cells and have undergone a chemical reaction resulting in the oxidation of melanin. This gives the material in the follicle the typical black color.
Other pimples include pustules, nodules, papules and cysts all of which are inflamed pores that can be especially painful.

More Information on Acne

There are countless treatments available for acne these days.  It seems as though the shelves are lined with one “miracle” product after the next.  In terms of treatment time, it usually takes up to 3 months to see the results from any acne treatment.  Usually in the first few weeks it is not uncommon to see the acne worsen.  Patience is no doubt a virtue when dealing with acne, though many people find that using two products concurrently tends to help more than one single product alone.
