What Causes Acne?
When pores are clogged, this often results in acne. Pores typically become clogged as a result of too much oil on the skin. When pores produce too much sebum oil, the oil traps in the dead skin cells it naturally tries to remove, creating a clogged pore and ultimately a blemish.
While clogged pores are the ultimate cause of acne, this skin condition can be negatively influenced or impacted by other factors, such as:
- Hormones or hormonal changes
- Oily or greasy substances on the skin
- Pressure or friction on the skin
- Some medications
