What Causes Acne?

posted in 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.

  • I hope this tip helped you!
    Thanks for looking!☺️
