What is acne?
Acne in a simpler sense is when the pores on your skin get clogged by dead skin, dirt, makeup and oils. There are many different kinds of acne such as blackheads, whiteheads, cysts and a few others. Blackheads are when the pore gets clogged but the top is still open which results in the black color. Whiteheads are when the pore is clogged and the top is closed which results in the white coloring. Cysts are when the pore is clogged very deep and hurt to touch. They are also typically bumped up and red or white. Whiteheads and blackheads are the most common and the mildest forms or acne. Cysts are one of the most severe forms of acne.
