Known to be the most common skin condition, acne occurs due to your pores becoming clogged with dead skin, sebum, and bacteria. Most of the time, people who have excessively oily skin have to deal with acne. There are various type of acne:

Types of Acne Description
Blackheads These are open comedones where the hair follicle is exposed.
Whiteheads These are closed comedones where the hair follicle is not detected.
Papule This type of acne is formed when a comedone is inflamed leading to the creation of a red bump.
Pustule Papules become pustules. This type of acne occurs when a comedone is filled with white pus and has a red ring surrounding it. Pustles can leave acne scars.
