Causes Of Acne
Acne is caused by the overproduction of sebum by enlarged sebaceous glands. This condition blocks the hair follicles causing the growth of bacteria within the pores. This triggers the outbreak of acne. Major types of acne are whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, papules, cysts and nodules. While an acne outbreak is common on the face (forehead, nose and chin), scalp acne and back acne is also common.
What Can Make Acne Worse?
Your acne condition might worsen due to factors like a hormonal imbalance, increased stress, pollution, food allergies, excessive sugar intake, use of products not compatible with your skin type, an abrasive method of washing and cleansing, etc.
