Acne is a skin condition that involves the oil glands of the skin. Skin has pores (tiny holes) which connect to oil glands located under the skin. The glands are connected to the pores via follicles - small canals. Sebum, an oily liquid, is produced by these glands. The sebum carries dead skin cells through the follicles to the surface of your skin. Pimples grow when these follicles get blocked.
Around three-quarters of 11 to 30 year-olds will get acne at some time. It most commonly affects adolescents and young adults. The primary cause is a rise in androgen hormone levels. Greasy cosmetics may cause acne in some susceptible people. Hormone changes during pregnancy may cause acne to either develop for the first time, or to recur.
Risk factors for acne are oil based make ups, greasy hair, hot and humid climate, squeezing the pimples, anxiety and stress and menstrual cycle.
While some people recover from acne without any permanent pimple scars, others, especially those with severe acne, end up with disfiguring acne scarring. Acne marks are formed when collagen within the skin is damaged from inflammation. Picking, pressing or rubbing your pimples or whiteheads increases the possibility of scar formation. There are several home remedies for the acne scar healing. Good news is that, these days several acne scar removal treatments are available for you to get rid of your acne scars.

There are three main categories of scarring: hyper tropic scars, keloidal scars and atrophic scars. Hyper tropic scars tend to cause the healing process to rise above the skin's surface. Keloid scars are usually raised and expand beyond the boundaries of the original wound. Atropic scarring occurs when there is a depression created in the skin such as stretch marks.
