Home Remedies for Acne

Acne is not just a problem for the teenagers only as is generally comprehended. You can experience its outbreak at any point of life as the basic reason for acne is very common to all. The sebaceous glands of your skin secrete natural body oil called sebum. It moistens your skin as well as hair. During hormonal shifts, the glands secrete more oil with which the dead skin cells stick and clog the tiny openings for the hair follicles. In case the openings are larger; the clogs take shape of small bump, flattened, with dark centers. These are called blackheads.  However, smaller openings take the shape of whiteheads.  These clogged areas allow the bacteria to grow leading to outbreak of acne.
