Why You REALLY Have Acne

Despite extensive research into the causes of acne and why certain people consistently suffer while others never experience a single bout of acne, the exact cause of it has never actually been discovered. There are however, contributing factors often associated with those who have acne and those who don’t, including:


Teenagers and zits often go hand-in-hand. In fact, studies have revealed that over 94% of the entire population between the ages of 12 and 24 have suffered from acne at one time or another.

The reason acne is so common among teenagers is because of the hormone, androgen, which begins to work overtime as we approach puberty. Androgens can cause our hair follicles and skin pores to become enlarged and extremely oily. When the oil mixes with our skin cells, it can cause our pores to become blocked, resulting in temporary acne breakouts.

Your Hormones

Hormones have been consistently linked to the cause of severe acne in both teenagers and adults.


Although scientists are still studying acne and heredity without having made any proven links at this time, it does tend to be the case that if your parents suffered from severe acne, you are far more prone to acne yourself.
