  • Harsh sunburns can dry out the skin's surface and aggravate your complexion. 
  • Hygiene 
  • Heat and sweat can create a breeding ground for bacteria, clogged pores and body acne.
  • Occupations: In some jobs, exposure to industrial products like cutting oils may produce acne. 
  •  Heredity: With the exception of very severe acne, most people do not have the problem exactly as their parents did.

  • The clogged hair follicle gradually enlarges, producing a bump
