Acne is a condition inherited from your parents. The skin cells that line the pore shed too quickly for the body to get rid of them. As the skin cells build up deep in the pore, mixing with oil, they form a plug that turns into a pimple. Sometimes it’s just a black or whitehead (non-inflamed). Sometimes, it’s a pustule or cyst (inflamed). And sometimes it could be both.

Either way, it is genetically determined whether your pores will function properly. If you are one whose pores don’t behave, we are so glad you found us.
