What Causes Acne?
There are a number of reasons why you might develop acne.
Excess oil production
Excess oil production can occur for many different reasons and is one of the leading causes of acne in teenagers and adults.
Clogged pores can be caused by dirt, oil, and impurities on the skin. It’s important to keep your skin clean and hydrated to prevent acne from forming due to clogged pores.
Bacteria can cause acne. This is usually due to things like makeup, when a smartphone touches your skin, or if you constantly touch your face with dirty hands.
Lastly, one of the more difficult causes of acne to control is hormonal changes. This is why many people experience acne breakouts around puberty. It can also occur when taking birth control, when you’re pregnant, or even when you’re stressed. This can lead to many different kinds of acne forming on your skin and they can be difficult to treat with topical treatments.

Your dermatologist will help you identify why your breakouts occur and also offer you advice on how to prevent them from happening. For instance, they may recommend that you avoid touching your face if they believe that clogged pores and bacteria are the main reasons for your acne breakouts.
