Some of the most common factors that establish a link between puberty and acne are:
- Hormonal changes
- Genetic factors
- Deficiency of certain nutrients
It is important to note that the factors as mentioned above lead to over activity of sebaceous gland or over sensitivity of skin. Due to over activity of oil glands extra oil is generated. And this oil combines with the dead cells that might be present on the skin. And as a result of this, the pores of the skin become blocked. When no action is taken to clear the skin pores, there is further clogging which would make the situation worse and may even lead to bacterial infection.
However, puberty acne is categorized in four categories and they are black heads, white heads, nodules and pimples. All these forms of puberty acne may be mild, moderate or severe. Pimples, black heads and white heads may be the milder forms of acne. Pustules may be moderately serious and large nodules can be considered as severe acne forms. As far as puberty acne is concerned, males are often affected more as compared to females. And the reason for this gender issue is the hormonal factor.
