What causes Acne?
No one factor causes acne. Acne occurs when sebaceous oil glands attached to the hair follicles are stimulated at the time of puberty due to hormonal changes. Sebum (oil) is a natural substance that lubricates the skin. If you have acne prone skin it is important not to over stimulate the skin when doing your facial cleansing. Our ZO Obagi medical acne kit contains a sulfur treatment to dry out excess sebum.
