Real Cause of Acne and Pimple Outbreaks

Acne and pimples are two of the most serious problems we have as a teenager.  But there are also some adults who are still having problems with their acne and finding solutions for their stubborn pimples.

Based on our past discussion on skin care, acne and pimple are caused by oily skin.  The production of acnes and pimples can sometimes be due to overproduction of our sebaceous glands.  When the sebaceous glands become clogged with oil and dirt, then that’s the onset of acne and pimple appearance.

Most people especially the teenagers who are growing adolescent, would experience this acne and pimple in their lifetime.  The major cause of pimples and acne to teenagers are their changing hormones.  When there is a sudden increase in estrogen, the production of oil in the body becomes very active.

For girls, the over production of their hormone estrogen would lead to overproduction of oil, which in turn causes the appearance of acne and pimple on their faces.

There are many different factors for the causes of acne and pimples. Some of these were:

  • Increased Hormonal level

Whether it’s a boy or girl as long as you are having problems with your skin. We may blame your hormone for doing such.  Too much acne and pimple would mean that your body is producing an excess of hormones in your body.

How do we alter this?

Many people don’t do anything against a pimple and acne attack.  Normally, the teenager’s breakout is just but temporary. Sooner or later, those pimples will naturally go away after some time or right after the onset of your maturity or adulthood.

There is really not much we can do if the problem is just temporary.  Most teenagers were able to overcome their problems just by letting it pass away naturally.

When they reach the adult stage, normally these skin outbreaks would normally go also. However, in other cases, some adults who already passed the teeners stage doesn’t seem to outgrow their acne and pimple problems.

For teenagers, solving their problems about a pimple and acne is simple. You just have to do these simple steps to avoid having pimple and acne problems.  You may also reverse the adolescent stage of having too many acne and pimple on your skin.
