Acne is a common skin condition where the sebaceous glands create too much oil, clogging the hair follicles. Inflammation and bacteria are other factors. Acne vulgaris is the actual medical term for acne. Acne leads to pustules, pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Teenagers are more prone to developing acne because puberty causes significant hormonal changes.

2) Stress - Stress levels rise along with age. The production of androgens is stimulated by an increase in stress. Androgens cause the sebaceous glands to create more oil, which clogs the pores of the hair follicles and results in acne.
