Which are the most common reasons for getting acne?

There too many different reasons for getting acne. No one is quite sure what causes them. Experts believe that the primary cause of acne is the increase in the level of androgen (a kind of hormone).

Teenagers are the most affected group because hormones play a significant role in creating of acne. While the teenage ones are gone with adolescence for many people, acne is not only a transient problem.

Hormonal changes that occur as a result of pregnancy, menstrual cycle, commencement and cessation of taking a contraceptive pill for women increase the chances of acne.

Besides hormones, pimples can also appear due to increased secretion of sebum, bacteria, receive certain medications (lithium), the use of strong cosmetics and diseases such as polycystic ovarian syndrome. If your parents suffered from acne, it is very likely that you face this problem, i.e. acne is hereditary.

I know some people who still suffer from this and it can be a real pain. It sounds amazing how much you can change by a healthy lifestyle and hygiene without even taking any medications.
