Skin Anatomy

The skin is made up of three layers.

1. The Hypodermis:- The is the deep and innermost layer of the skin, the subcutaneous tissue which is made up of fibroblasts, connective tissue, and adipose cells. The hypodermis acts as the energy reserve and the fats in this layer are re-circulated during extreme effort.

2. The Dermis:- The layer of the dermis is just below the topmost layer of the epidermis. It houses hair follicles, lymph vessels. Blood vessel and sweat-producing glands that help maintain the skin's elasticity.

3. The Epidermis:- The epidermis is the outermost layer acting as a barrier against the outside forces. It is made up of flat squamous cells, melanocytes, and basal. Melanocytes in the epidermis produce melanin and are responsible for the tone and color of the skin.
It is extremely important to maintain healthy skin. A healthy skin immediately reflects a healthy lifestyle.

Acne

What is Acne?
Acne is medically known as acne vulgaris. It is usually harmless and treatable tiny, pores connect to the oil glands situated just under the skin. Small canal or follicles are connected to the glands through their pores. Sebum is an oily liquid separated by glands that carry the dead skin cell to the outer surface of the skin. When the follicles get blocked oil accumulates under the skin pimples in the skin which are called acne. Good and Bad Strains of bacteria determine the rate of persistence and severity of acne.

What Are Its Causes

Hormonal imbalance sebaceous glands are enlarged and overstimulated due to androgens which cause acne.

Follicle Shed:- As a normal process dead skin cells are expelled to the skin's surface through the follicle. When there are overstimulated sebaceous glands, shedding of cells is quicker, plugging the follicle. This Plugging incites the growth of bacteria which is results in acne formation.

Over secretion of sebum over stimulation of sebaceous glands by the androgens cause extra production of sebum causing clogging of the follicles. This combined with skin bacteria from acne. Inflammation chemotaxis white blood cells attack unwanted bacteria causing swollen and painful pimples. This process of elimination invites an inflammatory response or chemotaxis.

Treatments

Medications oral antibiotics and contraceptives are commonly prescribed to treat moderate to severe acne. Oral antibiotic lowers the concentration of P acne or propionibacteria acne found in the skin which rapidly multiplies within the blocked follicles.
