Causes of Acne

Will we ever know what really causes acne?  We're often told the same things over and over - oil production, clogged pores, bacteria, inflammation, hormones, etc. Dan, at Acne.org, sums it up as follows:

The more you read about the potential cause of skin cell overproduction and clogged pore formation, the more complex it becomes. We have the hormone system to look at, sebum overproduction, the skin’s inflammatory response, systemic vitamin and mineral deficiency, bacteria over-proliferation, or a combination thereof…the possibilites are endless and the list goes on and on.

In his article, What the heck causes acne?, Dan gives an overview of the main causes. It's not comprehensive, but it's helpful if you're at all interested in the small amount of research behind the scenes of the acne medical field.
