Why do I get Acne?
Acne can result from a number of causes including stress, lack of sleep and hormonal imbalance. It's generally agreed that there are 4 main physical factors that cause acne:
- 1. Inflammation in and around the pores of the skin.
- 2. Excess sebum (oil).
- 3. Clogging of the pores as a result of dead skin cells.
- 4. Bacteria in and around the pores.
