Your body generates oil to moisturize your skin. This oil flows to the surface of the skin through the tiny pores of the skin. Sometimes when these pores are blocked by the dust particles, the oil is stopped from escaping and accumulates under the pores. The bacteria find a good ambience in this region and lead to the formation of a puss like material under the surface of the skin. This is called acne.

What are the notorious acne causing agents?

1. Oily foods

The Fats in oily foods try to moisturize your skin. When the skin pores are blocked, fats accumulate under the blocked skin pores and produces acne.

4. Dandruff

The dead skin in the scalp gets dried and break into tiny particles. This is what you call the dandruff. While dust is a foreign blocking agent, dandruff is a local one. But both do the same to your skin. When the dandruff in the scalp fall on the surface of the skin, the tiniest ones get trapped in the skin pores, thus acting as a blocking agent.
