In brief: Hormones

Acne affects over 80% of the population and its causes are multifactorial.
Some only have acne duing puberty while others only get it during adulthood or during pregnancy or after menopause. Some may even have it thru out most of their life. Hormones are a major factor. Those who get it during hormonal surges of puberty can stop getting acne once their hormones normalize in adulthood.
