Acne is the most common of all skin problems. Acne has its origin in the skin pore or, more accurately stated, the pilosebaceous unit. These units usually consist of a hair follicle and the associated sebaceous glands, which are connected to the skin by the follicular canal through which the hair shaft passes. The sebaceous glands produce sebum, a mixture of oils and waxes that lubricates the skin and prevents the loss of water.
Sebaceous glands are most highly concentrated on the face and, to a lesser extent, on the back, chest, and shoulders. Nutritional status seems to play a major role in acne, from both a preventive and therapeutic perspective. Another contributor to acne that is seldom recognized is intestinal toxemia. One study showed that fifty percent of patients with severe acne had increased blood levels of toxins absorbed from the intestines.
