Cause of Acne


Hormones: When you become a teenager and go through puberty, your body makes more hormones (especially androgen hormones) that can cause too much oil or sebum to be made. Sebum is supposed to carry dead skin cells up to the surface of the skin, but when there is too much of it, it clogs the pores leading to whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts.

Clogged pores: Acne is caused by clogged pores that contain a hair and sebaceous (oil) gland. The medical term, “acne vulgaris” is the most common kind of acne. It can show up anywhere on the body but it is usually found on the face, back, shoulders, and chest. Pores become clogged by dead skin cells and oil (sebum) made in the pore.
