Human skin is covered with thousands of pilous follicles, also known as pores. These follicles can become blocked when sebum, which, under normal circumstances, seeps through the surface of the skin, becomes trapped. This causes bacteria to develop. Plugged pores, or microcmedones, are the main provokes of acne flare-ups.
