In brief: Find reason

Sometimes acne comes on its own and sometimes it is part of a hormonal disorder. It is important to see a reproductive endocrinologist to see if there is a specific reason for the acne.
Preventing acne is much easier that treating it once it is out of control. This is a very common problem.
