In brief: Causes of acne

Acne can be due to genetics, changes in hormones (during puberty, pregnancy, menopause), hormonal imbalance with too much of one hormone, stress, & diet related the japanese did not have alot of acne until fast food was introduced so diet is a huge new contributor to this problem. Cell phones & hats can cause frictional acne; so lots of reasons.
