Acne is one of the most predominant skin challenges faced by teenagers through adulthood. Sujata Naik, The Founder of Sakasti Skinic and a Cosmetologist by profession, strongly believes, that the " cure of most skin problems lies in finding out its core root cause, and acne is no exception."A common misconception is that Acne only affects teenagers. But more than ever before, adults are suffering with oily and acneic skin conditions. Acne arising in adulthood is more likely to be inflammatory with fewer comedones (blackheads) then teenage acne and with lesions predominantly located around the mouth, chin and jaw line.

Summer is back again and its time for one and all to break into sweats. Sweat and acne are highly related. When you sweat, it clogs your pores so sebum cannot flow out of the skin. This can lead to severe acne breakouts just after one or two days of hot weather. As your wiping yourface frequently to remove the sweat from the skin, dirt and other waste accumulate on the skin. With summers set in to trouble ones skin with several issues Sujata Naik, the skin expert highlights three of the main "Biochemical" triggers that contribute to acne.

  1. Sebaceous Gland Hyperactivity:
Sebum is continuously synthesized by the sebaceous glands and secreted to the skin surface through the hair follicle pore. It is known that sebum production or oil is the catalyst for the series of events that result in acne or breakouts.
  1. Cell Accumulation and Bacteria:
In a normal follicle dead surface cells are continually sloughed from the epidermal canal and are deposited at the surface of the skin. However, when acne is present a proliferation of cells occurs at the neck of the follicle, accompanied by excess sebum that cases the cells to stick together along with bacteria, this leads to formation of an impaction plug that provides a nice anaerobic environment for the bacteria to thrive in. this process results in altered keratinization, is often called relention hyper keratosis.
  1. The basic lesion/ Inflammation:
The fundamental acne lesion is the Microcomedo, or Microcomedone, an enlarged hair follicle full of sebum.Although there is a long list of materials that can cause comedones, the mechanism of spontaneous comedone formation is unknown. The comedo that remains beneath the skin is a whitehead; a comedo that opens to the surface of the skin is labeled a blackhead because it appears black on the epidermis. The diverse array of other acne lesions includes Papules (small, inflamed lesions presenting as pink, tender, nonpustular bumps), Pustules (small, inflamed, tender, pustular lesions, usually need at the base), Nodules (relatively large, spherical,painful lesions located deeper in the dermis) and Cysts (even deeper, inflamed,pustular painful lesions that can cause scaring).
