Some Causes of Acne

• Hormones: 

For most people, acne begins at puberty. The body starts to produce
hormones called androgens. Androgens cause the enlargement and over stimulation
of the sebaceous glands in people with acne. Sensitivity to these androgens
also causes acne during the menstrual cycle and sometimes in pregnancy. The
extra oil (sebum) from the sebaceous glands mixes with dead skin cells and bacteria
(Proprionibacterium acnes) on the skin’s surface and blocks pores. Inside the
blocked pore, these bacteria multiply to cause inflammation that leads to acne.

• Stress: 
Stress causes the production of hormones, such as cortisol, that can
aggravate acne. Stress also causes the digestive system to slow down; this in itself is often linked to acne.
• Harsh,drying skin care products: 
These dry the skin too much, causing the sebaceous glands to excrete more oil to compensate for the dryness. Dry skin also leads to excess dead skin cells. More oil plus excess dead skin cells equals blocked pores and more acne
