In brief: Not from unclean

Acne in normal people is unrelated to cleanliness.
The skin pores just have clumps of skin cells plugging the pores. The larger clumps can be seen as comedones (blackhead). If one gets hot for a while, more oils and sweat come through the skin. When blocked, pimples form. Blocked sweat pores are less common and have a different name. A doctor can give acne medication to help. Avoid over-scrubbing.
