It can affect mainly the face, but often the back and chest too.
Sebaceous glands are attached to hair follicles on the skin. These glands lubricate the hair by producing an oily substance called sebum. This prevents the hair from drying out. Acne can occur when the glands produce too much sebum and block the hair follicles.
Acne can be caused by hormonal changes, for example, during puberty or during the menstrual cycle. It is also believed to run in families. Often, acne sufferers have experienced a flare up after using certain cosmetic products or taking certain medications.
