What causes acne?

Acne is primarily a hormonal condition driven by androgen hormones. They characteristically become active during the teenage and young adult years. Sensitivity to these hormones, combined with surface bacteria on the skin and fatty acids within oil glands can result in acne. Certain things that can cause acne or make the condition worse are fluctuating hormone levels around the time of a woman’s period, picking at acne sores, clothing, and headgear (hats and sports helmets). Weather conditions like high humidity and air pollution can also lead to acne or other skin problems. Pimples can also develop by using oily or greasy personal care products like heavy lotions, creams, waxes and hair pomades or at your workplace where your skin routinely encounter grease or oily substances. Stress upsurges the hormone cortisol which in turn can flare up the acne.
