Is my acne caused by genetics, hormones, or something else?

causes of acne

Acne is caused by a combination of genetic tendency, hormonal changes, and to a lesser (but significant) degree, factors such as stress, food, and use of the wrong cosmetics. The most important part of acne treatment is to use the right products for your skin using ingredients that will be effective enough to treat and prevent acne without over-irritating the skin.

In addition to an effective, anti-acne skincare routine, it's important to understand other acne triggers and consider making diet and lifestyle changes as needed (more info here: https://www.mdacne.com/acne-help).
