Causes of Acne   

   

The exact cause of acne is not known, but factors that contribute to this condition include heredity, oily skin and hormonal changes such as androgens. Additional factors are various internal and external reasons including allergies, stress, the use of certain drugs, nutritional deficiencies, liver dysfunction, digestive problems, exposure to industrial pollutants, cosmetics bacteria, infection and the monthly menstrual cycle.

In addition, the skin functions to eliminate a portion of the body's toxic waste by sweating. If the body contains more toxins than the kidneys or liver can effectively discharge, the skin takes over. In fact, some doctors call the skin the 3rd kidney. As toxins escape through the skin, they can disrupt the health and integrity of the skin, creating issues.
