    Mmmmm… couple of questions about this video .. isn’t it that part of the pathophysiology of acne is that skin responds abnormally to ‘normal’ circulating levels of testosterone? Equally I thought the ‘compounds in chocolate hypothesis’ has been discredited least not replicated in later studies? Awesome video as always of course… 😁

    Caused by a high fat diet, typical of adolescents.

    The only effective treatment is oral Isotretinion. But the thing is you have to continue the therapy like forever. Whenever you stop taking it, after 40 days they are gonna pop up again..

    So just keep your face clean, use a good facewash and wait for 'em to go on their own..

    What about rosacea!

    I had acne before but I learned why I had it and I was able to cure it, I learned that high glycemic carbohydrates or spikes of glucose stimulate the androgen hormone and the androgen hormone stimulates the production of sebum causing acne. Once I stopped spiking my blood sugar more that 60 acne was gone instantly (you have to learn a little bit about the glycemic index to make it work). Other things that you have to take care of are stress, hydration and inflammation, you get this wrong and it's difficult to get more acne.

    I’m subscribed to both osmosis and Cassandra and I was so happy when I saw that you guys collaborated together! There wasn’t I better person to collaborate this with then Cassy, she is awesome and has been educating herself on this topic for years. Nice video as always osmosis, I love watching your videos not only for school but also for personal education. Your videos are always very clear to understand and makes biology and diseases a bit more fun and easy to understand. Thanks ❤️

    What I don't understand is how can something block a hair. Are our hairs hollow on the inside? How can bacteria live in there? Is a 'hair follicle' the same as a hair?

    What's the point of this video???

    Good video about anatomy of the skin and pores but useless for control of acne……….

    I think that 🤔 mild acne may be open comedone which is black head or closed comedone which is white head not pustules 😉
