Top Causes of Acne in the Face


Your skin has tiny pores through which it breathes. If any of these pores get blocked by oil, bacteria, dead skin cells or dirt, your skin develops a pimple. If your skin gets affected by this condition very often, then you may have Acne. As common as it is, Acne tends to be very painful once it becomes severe. It also tends to cause emotional distress. The acne on the face may cause self-esteem issues as it may cause permanent scars on the face. Here are some of the top causes that may cause acne in the face –

Hormonal Issues

There are a lot of factors that might be causing acne. However, the primary cause of acne has been commonly seen to be during a rise in the levels of androgen. The levels of Androgen rise during the onset of adolescence. Androgen gets converted into Estrogen in female bodies.

The rising levels of Androgen make the oil glands under the skin to grow. Enlarged glands produce more sebum, which breaks down the cellular walls in the pores causing bacterial growth.

Accumulation of Dirt

One of the acne-causing reasons is dirt. So, makes sure you are living in a clean environment. You might have got traces of bacteria on your phone which spreads to your face when you are holding it up against your face while talking to someone. Constant breakout of acne on the sides of your skin may also be due to the use of dirty pillow covers. Additionally, make sure that you never touch your face with a dirty hand, as it tends to clog pores with dirt.

If you have too much of side face acne, consider cleaning your phone regularly with some kind of disinfectant. You might even consider switching to Bluetooth headsets or earphones to avoid too much direct contact with your dirty phone. Make sure you use clean bed sheets and pillow cover so as to keep your environment clean.

Excess Oil Production

The primary cause of acne is excess oil production. If you are someone with naturally oily skin with an acne problem, you might consider trying to do something about lessening the secretion of oil. Making changes in diet, consuming more water, or even using the right products on your skin may help reduce the secretion of excess oil.

There are a lot of creams available in the market, but most of them contain harmful chemicals which might not suit you and make your acne worse.

It mostly occurs during puberty when your sebaceous glands are activated, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t occur in other stages of your life. Treating acne and getting back your clear skin may seem like an impossible thing but there is always a way out.
