SKIN INFO: Causes of Acne

April 24, 2013

In girls and women, the timeline during the menstrual cycle shows an increase in acne on the skin.

Hormonal changes at the onset of puberty or during pregnancy can also cause the pores on the skin to get clogged up.

A sudden start or stop in the use of birth control medication can also result in acne showing up on the skin.

Heredity and the use of greasy cosmetics also results in the appearance of acne.

Teenagers show an increased manifestation of acne as the hormonal changes during puberty add to the sebum build-up, leading to more inflamed pores.

Lifestyle changes, especially being subject to a lot of stress, can also result in acne developing on the skin.
