Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point. It causes spots, oily skin and sometimes skin that’s hot or painful to touch.
There are several different types of acne, with the most common being acne vulgaris.
A range of factors can cause Acne. These include stress, hormonal fluctuations associated with pregnancy, menopause and oral contraceptives, medication side effects, sweating, excessive oil production, sleep habits and hair and skincare products.
Acne is most commonly caused by changes in hormone levels which is why it is commonly brought on by puberty. Certain hormones can cause glands in the skin that create oil to overproduce, which in turn aggravates the skin bacterium and causes inflammation and pus. Hormones can also thicken the inner lining of hair follicles and cause blockage of the pores.
