Acne Causes

The exact cause of acne is unknown but there are several factors that may contribute to this skin condition.

These factors include:

  • Genetics (will most likely affect you if other family members had acne)
  • Hormones (hormonal changes during puberty, or monthly periods)
  • Infections (germs such as bacteria may cause acne)
  • Certain medications (steroids, anticonvulsants, hormones or birth control pills may cause acne)
  • Skin cosmetics (moisturizers, makeup and cosmetics clog the pores of the skin and cause acne)
  • Environmental conditions (humidity can increase the outbreak of acne)
