Acne 101: What Causes Acne?

When you know how acne works, you can fight back.

The oil glands in your skin are pretty useful: they create sebum, which protects your skin and keeps it hydrated. But when your body produces too much sebum and it gets trapped in your pores, it promotes the growth of the bacteria P. acnes—an equation that can lead to breakouts. With Neutrogena® acne products, you can do something about breakouts before they can break through.

Whiteheads (whitish or skin-colored bumps) occur when pores get clogged under the skin’s surface with oil and dead skin cells. Blackheads are similar, except they have a surface opening that turns dark when exposed to air. To fight both kinds of breakouts, you need the best acne treatment that clears pores and removes excess oil. And since acne takes weeks to emerge, you’ll need to stick with your new routine over time to get results.

In your teens, your skin naturally produces more oily sebum, thanks to hormonal changes, environment and other factors. And although it’s a lot going on, there are numerous ways you can take control. Use oil-free makeup and hair products, and keep your hands off your acne (no popping pimples!). Also, be sure to get enough sleep and do some meditation or exercise—any activity that helps reduce your stress levels.
