Little bumps under the skin (in clusters)

The hormone is present both in men and women in differing properties

The of the oil glands is controlled by the male sex hormone, androgen, present in the body. This hormone is present both in men and women in differing properties.
As and when the level of androgen, due to the hyperactivity of adrenal glads and ovaries in the case of women, rises, the oil glands become overactive. This worsens the oily skin condition and encourage the formation of acne.

The role of bacteria in the formation of Acne

There are two main types of bacteria and a yeast type of fungus that are all over the skin surface. they are harmless and benign on normal skin. However, they become harmful bacteria on oily skin.
The harmful bacteria work like this: when blockages or congestion appear in the skin pores, the harmful bacteria thrive in the low oxygen environment inside the glads and chemically change the triglycerides into fatty acids, thereby forming whiteheads.
