Why

Why is my face breaking out so bad?

Hi,
How are you? Acne usually occurs when pores on the surface of the skin become clogged.  Dirt, bacteria, and cells build up and usually leads to whitehead or blackhead. If the the plug breaks open, swelling and red bumps occur.This can be associated with medication side effect, high levels of humidity and sweating; chemicals; and  hormonal changes related to puberty, menstrual periods, pregnancy, birth control pills, or stress. Drink plenty of fluids, eat healthy, wear sunscreen and have a healthy lifestyle. You can also have this checked by your doctor or dermatologist for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
