CAUSES OF ACNE & OILY SKIN

Acne is caused by hair follicles clogged with oil and dead skin cells.  Sebum can't reach skin's surface.  Bacteria may develop.  Pimples are caused when blocked hair follicles are inflamed or infected.  Deep blockage can produce cysts beneath the skin's surface.

--  Hormonal changes affect sebaceous glands which can then affect sebum production.  Boys and girls in puberty and pregnant women are all affected by hormonal changes. 

--  Some medications with corticosteroids and androgens.

--  Foods that increase blood sugar; (breads & chips).

--  Harsh chemicals in soaps or detergents can cause a protective skin reaction, producing excess oil.
