Acne is a common skin disease or a skin condition that affects around 9.3% of the world population. Almost all of us are affected by acne at some point in our lifetime.

What Are Pimples?

Pimples are basically symptoms of acne or we can say that they are a type of acne, that’s results from the clogged pores, which is caused due to the overproduction of sebum. These clogged pores are due to the entrapped dead cells, sebum and bacteria.

In acne, skin involves oil glands at the base of the hair follicle that is the base for many inflammatory and non-inflammatory skin lesions, like pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, cysts and pustules.

What Are The Pimple Marks?

Pimple marks are dark spots which can be brown, black or pink or hyperpigmentation resulting from the damage caused to the skin after the inflammation recedes. The damage to the skin due to overexposure to the sun or bursting pimple leads to excess production of melanin during healing, resulting in marks, which we call them pimple marks or acne marks or acne scars.

Causes Of Pimples Marks/Acne:

It occurs when sebaceous/oil glands attached to the hair follicles are stimulated due to hormonal changes or due to puberty. Sebum (oil), a natural substance that lubricates and protects the surface of the skin. Skin cells mature in association with the increased oil production, inducing them to plug the pore of the hair follicle. This plug can appear as a whitehead, and when exposed to the air, it becomes darker and is called a blackhead.

A bump is produced when the plugged hair follicle is enlarged. The enlargement of the follicles may rupture the walls that allow normal skin bacteria and other irritating substances to enter deeper into the skin, ultimately producing inflammation.
