What Causes Acne?
Skin & Body
Understanding what causes acne leads you one step closer to resolving it. Your skin is producing too much sebum. Sebum is the thick oily substance that acts as a natural lubricant and the excess is blocking your pores.
There are two kinds of acne. The most common form, acne vulgaris shows up on your face, chest, shoulders or back as black heads white heads or red blemishes.
The second kind is cyst acne. It appears as painful cysts or firm painless lumps.
Fluctuating hormones caused by puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, premenopause, or birth control pills often increase production of sebum which triggers outbreak.
Other causes may be emotional stress, clothing that runs against the skin and some drugs such as steroids. Genetics may also play a role.
