In brief: Acne and Hot Showers

The cause of the acne is not the hot shower however. Acne is caused by many different things.
A hot shower only allows the acne to surface and come out. What causes the acne in the first place is probably something to do with your diet and lifestyle, genetics a acne can be caused by the things that you eat. If your diet is fast food and potato chips then chances are you are more likely to get acne.
