What is a zit and what causes it?
The medical term for a zit is acne vulgaris and it is one of the most common skin conditions that people encounter in their life. It is characterized by a reddish inflammation that is infected and eventually starts to corm nodules and even cysts. A zit starts to form when a pore (also called a hair follicle) starts to accumulate bacteria, dirt and oils. It could be caused by several factors such as:
- Hormonal imbalances when a person goes through puberty
- Unhealthy lifestyle (eating processed and fast foods daily, lack of sleep and exercise)
