What is acne? Acne appears when a pore in our skin clogs. This clog begins with dead skin cells. Dead skin cells rise to surface of the pore, and the body sheds the cells. When the body starts to make lots of oil to keep the skin from drying out, the dead skin cells can stick together inside the pore. Instead of rising to the surface, the cells become trapped inside the pore. Sometimes bacteria that live on our skin, also get inside the clogged pore. With loads of bacteria inside, the pore becomes inflamed. If the inflammation goes deep into the skin, an acne cyst or nodule appears.
