  • Oil secretion: We all have sebaceous gland underneath our skin which prevents dryness of hair and skin by producing oil. When sebum is produced in the excessive amount due to stress or other hormonal activity then it leads to the formation of acne. Also, this excessive sebum activates bacteria which causes skin reaction which leads to inflammation around the acne.
