Acne is a skin condition that occurs when these two problems occur at the same time: on one hand, the sebaceous gland produces a excess of fat and, on the other hand, there is an obstruction of the surface holes of the skin, the ones are called pores. This fact triggers an inflammation of the pore by accumulation of fat inside, even being able to reach an infection of the same.
In the cases where clogging of the pores does not occur, excess sebum can exit producing the dreaded facial shine. This is the case of what is considered oily skin. In these situations, an inflammatory lesion may also appear occasionally.
