Acne-Risk factors


Hormonal changes in your body can provoke or aggravate acne. Such changes are common in:
  • Teenagers, both boys and girls

  • Women and girls, two to seven days before their periods

  • Pregnant women

  • People using certain medications, including cortisone

Other risk factors include:
  • Exposing your skin directly to greasy or oily substances, or to certain cosmetics.

  • Having a family history of acne. If your parents had acne, you may be likely to develop it too.

  • Friction or pressure on your skin caused by items such as telephones or cell phones, helmets, tight collars and backpacks.
