Causes Of Facial Breakouts In Adolescence?
I wonder why many people my age / high school kids who smoke but not spotty have clean faces, right? The effects of smoking are many, especially the face becomes spotty, but why is it that I who don’t smoke even get spotty?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Acne can occur due to a blockage in the oil gland outlet in the skin. This blockage can occur due to a buildup of dead skin cells and dirt mixed with sebum (natural skin oil). When blockages occur, bacteria will easily develop, so inflammation in acne can occur.
There are many factors that affect the appearance of acne, for example:
age and hormonal changes (acne more often appears during puberty, in women can appear during menstruation or during pregnancy, can also occur due to diseases that cause hormonal disorders such as PCOS)
family history of acne
the use of certain drugs that increase androgen hormones in the body
use of hormonal contraception in women
unfavorable facial treatments and allergies and excessive irritation of the face
The effect of smoking on the emergence of acne itself is still controversial, there are studies that show a link between smoking and the appearance of acne, there are also studies that do not show a causal relationship between the two.
Although until now smoking is not included as a risk factor for acne, but you should still avoid smoking because smoking has many other adverse health effects. The following article you can read about the adverse effects of smoking on health. Here is also an article that you can read about how to treat acne prone skin.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
