Acne develops when pores become clogged. What type of acne you get depends on what clogs your pores.
You can develop any combination of these breakouts on your skin
Describes how each of these breakouts develops with pictures.
This type of acne also develops when excess oil and dead skin cells build up inside the pore. As it accumulates, it widens the opening of the pore and you see blackheads.
Question most people ask are “why blackheads are black?” it is due to chemical reaction. When it build up inside the pore it reacts with oxygen in the air, the black colour appears. And it is not like many people mistakenly believe due to dirt.
Whiteheads form when excess oil and dead skin cells build up and opening of a pore. It will cause a blemish to raise white or flesh colour.
Acne nodules or cyst
The main different between Acne nodules and cyst is that a cyst contains “PUS” and nodules don’t contain pus. They feel harder to the touch than cyst.
