• Although oil production is increased, this alone does not cause acne

• The cause of acne is not fully understood and many factors play a role. Increased oil secretion from the skin combined with overgrowth of the follicular surface and the presence of bacteria all contribute to acne

• Hormone flucuations, humidity, and heat all play a role in acne exacerbations
