Home Remedies for Acne

Home Remedies for Acne, human skin, especially on the face, neck, back, and chest is covered in hundreds of thousands of microscopic hair follicles, often called pores. For reasons no one completely understands, these follicles sometimes overproduce cells and become blocked. Sebum (oil) which normally drains to the surface gets trapped and bacteria begins to grow.

Types of Acne;
 A)  Non-inflammatory Acne (1-Whitehead, 2-Blackhead )
Microcomedones can spontaneously become unplugged and heal or they become non-inflamed skin blemishes called comedones--either a whitehead or a blackhead:

1- Whitehead -When the trapped sebum and bacteria stay below the skin surface, a whitehead is formed.

2- A Blackhead occurs when the pore opens to the surface, and the sebum, which contains the skin pigment melanin, oxidizes and turns a brown/black color. It is not dirt and can not be washed away.

B) Inflammatory Acne (1-Papule,  2-Pustule)
A blackhead or whitehead can release its contents to the surface and heal. Or, the follicle wall can rupture and inflammatory acne can ensue. This rupture can be caused by random occurrence or by picking or touching the skin.

1- Papule - A papule occurs when there is a break in the follicular wall. White blood cells rush in and the pore becomes inflamed

2- Pustule - A pustule forms several days later when white blood cells make their way to the surface of the skin. This is what people usually refer to as a "zit" or a "pimple.

A papule or pustule can completely collapse or explode, severely inflaming the surrounding skin, and may engulf neighboring follicles. These lesions are called cysts or nodules:
