Habits That Could Be Causing Your Acne

While acne is famous for being a teenager’s concern, this frustrating condition can also occur in adulthood and take a toll on your confidence. However, in many cases, acne can be prevented or treated by simply changing the bad habits that cause it. Learn more about habits that could be causing your acne with Dr. Juan-Carlos Caballero at Warrenton Dermatology and Skin Therapy Center in Warrenton, VA.

What causes acne? 

While the true cause of acne is unknown, we do know that it occurs when the skin’s pores become blocked. This blockage happens when the skin’s sebaceous glands produce too much oil, which mixes with dead skin cells and clogs the pore. Bacteria grows in the clogged pore, causing a pimple to form.
