What causes acne?
Acne can be caused by hormones, oily skin, genetics, and bacteria.
Acne occurs when our hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. When our glands secrete an excess of an oily substance (sebum) and dead skin cells, the two can build up in the hair follicles.
Together they form a soft plug, creating an environment where bacteria can thrive. If the clogged pore becomes infected with bacteria, inflammation results.
