Acne scar is primarily seen as a small pimple on the face and other areas of the body. Acne scars can be of various types. In the beginning, the scars may appear as only reddish marks on the skin. These are easy to get rid of if treated at the right time. Gradually, the scars may start getting deeper and appear as blemishes or dark spots on the face. 

Normally, dead skin cells are shed when they grow to the exterior of your pores. Nevertheless, if your body is creating a large quantity of sebum (the oil that keeps your skin moist), these dead skin cells can get trapped inside your pores, causing whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples that usually breakout in areas of the face and other parts of your body. Acne can be seen in two kinds:

  • Whiteheads or blackheads: These are produced when oil, dead skin cells and bacteria block the hair follicles.

  • Pimples: These pimples develop when bacteria from the skin start to grow inside the hair follicles and generate inflammation. 

  • Cysts (under skin, pus-filled lumps)

  • Nodules (solid, painful lumps just beneath the surface of your skin)

  • Papules (small red tender, raised bumps)

  • Pustules (pimples that are red on the rear and have pus on the top)

Everything You Need to Know


Some of the assumed cases cited by our elders as causes of acne are insignificant myths. Acne is not caused by drinking too much coffee or consuming an oily meal. Similarly washing the face repeatedly, is also not the answer to eliminate it. Acne is produced by the trapping of dead skin in the oil pores of the skin. The skin gets jammed and is not able to breathe suitably. This may result in pimples on the surface. Excess oil produced by sebaceous glands found under our skin usually generates this problem.  Few causes can be - 

  • Hormonal changes -  Androgens are hormones that increase in boys and girls during puberty and cause the sebaceous glands to grow and produce more sebum. Hormone changes during midlife, particularly in women, can start to breakouts too.

  • Certain medications -  Examples involves drugs containing corticosteroids, testosterone or lithium.

  • Diet - Studies show that eating specific foods — including carbohydrate-rich foods, such as bread, bagels and chips — may worsen acne.

  • Stress - Stress doesn't generate acne, however, if you have acne already, stress may make it more harmful.

  • Emotional stress

  • Menstruation

  • Constant sun exposure
