    Causes of ACNE

    Human skin has pores that connect to oil glands under the skin. Follicles connect the glands to the pores. Follicles are small sacs that produce and secrete liquid.
    The glands produce an oily liquid called sebum. Sebum carries dead skin cells through the follicles to the surface of the skin. A small hair grows through the follicle out of the skin.
    Pimples grow when these follicles get blocked, and oil builds up under the skin.
    Skin cells, sebum, and hair can clump together into a plug. This plug gets infected with bacteria, and swelling results. A pimple starts to develop when the plug begins to break down.

    Hormonal factors

    A range of factors triggers acne, but the main cause is thought to be a rise in androgen levels.
    Androgen is a type of hormone, the levels of which rise when adolescence begins. In women, it gets converted into estrogen.
    Rising androgen levels cause the oil glands under the skin to grow. The enlarged gland produces more sebum. Excessive sebum can break down cellular walls in the pores, causing bacteria to grow.

    Other possible triggers


    Some studies suggest that genetic factors may increase the risk.
    Other causes include:

    • some medications that contain androgen and lithium
    • greasy cosmetics
    • hormonal changes
    • emotional stress
    • menstruation
