Acne can be caused by a combination of factors. Excess oil production and lack of natural exfoliation of the skin are the most common.

There are many misconceptions about acne, one of them being that acne is caused by poor diet or uncleanliness. Acne is a medical condition and needs to be treated by trained doctors and nurses, as untreated acne can lead to permanent scarring.
