Acne can develop at any age especially during the teenage years. They also are more likely to occur during times of hormone level increases, such as pregnancy and menstruation too.
Overactive sebaceous glands cause hair follicles (or “pores”) on the skin to become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells; this triggers the bacteria to start to grow, resulting in skin irritation and inflammation. Red bumps and pus-filled red bumps known as pimples appear. Further bacteria proliferation will eventually lead to the development of chronic acne.
