The causes of acne

There are many causes of acne that effect millions of people from all over the world each year. It is not just “one thing” that causes it but it can be one of many things. Caring for your skin is one of the ways that you can use to prevent the acne from appearing. Using cleansing lotions or moisturizer is also a great way to remove any oils or dirt which may be building up and is invisible to the naked eye.

It is vital that you understand how your skin and body functions to really realize how acne starts to develop on top of the skin. The main cause is when the pores of the skin are blocken and kept closed by dirt, oil and bacteria. By removing these with daily cleansing you are allowing your pores to remian open and will have a lesser chance of acne appearing.

Another cause is a change in hormone levels. This is why teenagers tend to suffer from acne more than adults. But this isn’t just limited to teenagers as many adults, especially women, have changes in their hormone levels frequently and suffer from the same imbalance. This causes the skin to be more oily and the pores become blocked by this oil.

Another cause of acne can be the poor diet. Eating a lot of sugary foods such as sweets, chocolate etc can cause acne. So always try to eat as healthy as you can.
All in all, the causes of acne are many but there are also many things you can do to prevent it from occuring. Make sure your skin stays clean all the time, eat healthily and try to remain calm, as stress can be a factor too. Just by following these simple tips, can really help you to stay acne free for many years to come.
