All types of acne occur when pores, or hair follicles, in the face, neck, chest or back become clogged with excess oil, dead skin cells or built up bacteria. Some people may have naturally oilier skin and be genetically predisposed to acne, while others experience greater exposure to bacteria that causes acne.
Hormones certainly affect the skin and may also lead to the development of acne. The onset of puberty, pregnancy, menstruation and hormonal birth control methods may trigger acne breakouts. Some skin care product ingredients and possibly even dietary factors, such as intake of dairy products and high-starch foods, may promote acne as well.
Regular medical cleanse treatments are the first line of defense against regular breakouts.
The right acne treatment or combination of treatments is chosen based on a variety of factors, including the type and severity of the acne, as well as the face or body area and characteristics of the skin affected by acne.
