Acne is a condition where the skin is inflamed this is because the pores and follicles in the skin become blocked, which can cause white heads, blackheads, spots, and sometimes cysts. Some people also produce excess oil due to an increase in sebaceous activity which mixes with dead skin cells which can then block the pores. If bacteria on the skin contaminates and infects the blocked pores it can then cause Cystic Acne.
