There are four main factors causing acne:
- Excessive fat (sebum) production
- Hair follicles blocked by fat and dead skin cells
Acne is typically seen on your face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders because these skin zones have most of the sebaceous glands. Hair follicles are also connected to the sebaceous glands.
Factors triggering acne:
- Family story
- Use of oily products
- Fraction and pressure on the skin
- Hormonal changes
- Some medications
The Common Mistakes About Acne
Chocolate and oily food: Eating chocolate or oily food has little or no effect on pimples.
Hygiene: Acne is not caused by the dirt on the skin. In fact, harsh rubbing or cleaning the skin with intensive chemicals irritates the skin, which worsens the pimples.
Make-up products: Healthy make-up products do not cause acne.
