The sebaceous gland, which is responsible for producing sebum start to over produce the oil. The excess oil it produces comes up through the skin’s pores and secretes onto the skin. On the surface of the skin the oil gets mixed with dead skin cells and other debris and it can start to clog pores and follicles. This leads to the presence of bacteria in the pores results in raised pimples and cause inflammation.
