Understanding Acne & Breakouts A blemish forms when a pore becomes clogged with dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria, then becomes inflamed. Blemishes can be whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples. Acne is a series of multiple and consistent breakouts where bacteria is present. Hormones, stress, genetics, and even pollution can lead to breakouts. A blemish starts deep within a pore, weeks before any signs of infection surface. So prevention and care are key. Squeezing, popping, or picking at a blemish can lead to scars and discoloration.
