WHY DO I HAVE ACNE?
Acne commonly develops on the face, back, shoulders, and chest because of dead skin cells and oil that plug up hair follicles. Acne forms in these areas of the body because they have the most sebaceous glands (oil glands). Hair is connected to these glands, and when they get clogged up or the follicle wall begins to bulge, blackheads and whiteheads will develop.
WHAT ARE THE FACTORS THAT CAUSE PIMPLES?
The most common factors that cause pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads are:
- Family history
- Pressure or friction on the skin
If both of your parents dealt with pimples, you’re likely to get them as well. Hormones are the most common factor for teens, although they can develop at any age. Stress and friction do not necessarily cause pimples to develop, but they will make them worse. Contrary to popular belief, oily foods do not cause acne.
