What Causes Acne?

Acne is not a disease of the skin, it’s a four-pronged inflammatory illness that may result from:

  • Hormones that lead to increased oiliness in the skin
  • A modified skin care process that contributes to pores getting clogged with oil and dead skin cells
  • Regular bacteria on the skin which thrive in clogged pores
  • Along with a response that occurs as clogged pores and the regions around them become inflamed, resulting in observable acne
