Breakouts, blemishes, pimples, and some irritating pain can all be the cause of some lifestyle factors. The overproduction of oil, sebum is really what’s causing the clogged pores, inflammation and blemishes in the end. But it is what causes the overproduction that needs to be pinpointed in order to effectively treat the skin in a healthy way.
4. Hormones- Especially during adolescent puberty, hormones stimulate an overproduction of oil, as they are trying to adjust themselves to find the right amount of secretion for the quickly growing and changing body.
5. Stress- It can do strange things to the body and cause many negative body blemishes. It has been clinically proven that stress causes a worsening of overall skin condition. Stress induces adrenal into the over production of cortisol which makes glands produce more oil. This chain of events all leads to inflamed and puss-filled acne more often than just a simple whitehead or blackhead.
6. Prescriptions and Medications- Certain steroids found in medications can be the cause of breakouts. Inflammatory disorders such as poison ivy, allergies and arthritis, among others are treated by prednisone, an ingredient that can cause breakouts. Cortisone and hydrocortisone are other steroids that stimulate the sebaceous gland, which causes sebum oil to produce at abnormal rates.
