Know your stage

Causes of acne breakouts

- Acne can be caused by bacteria that can grow on the skin. These bacteria can trigger inflammation resulting on more severe breakouts.

-When growing hormones, like that happen in puberty cause too much oil to be produced.  The  pores in the face, neck, chest and shoulders, the pores can become clogged and breakout.

-Hair follicles can become blocked by oil leading to breakouts.

 People whose close family members have had acne are more likely to develop the condition too.

Some people find their acne seems to become worse when they eat certain foods, but acne is not generally caused by the foods you eat. If you are very overweight and you have acne, it is likely to be more severe and harder to treat.

Adult acne, also called hormonal acne, is acne that continues past the age of around 18 to 20 or starts when someone is in their early twenties.

Acne vulgaris generally affects teenagers and continues for 3 to 5 years although it can sometimes carry on for longer.
