Causes of Acne

1. Diet

Carbohydrates with a high glycemic index, which cause glucose and insulin levels to spike, may influence the severity of acne. Conversely, a diet high in protein and carbohydrates with a low glycemic index improves acne breakouts.

2. Stress

When under stress, the body produces more sebum oil. Overly oily skin may result in clogged pores and cause acne to appear.

3. Vitamin deficiency

Deficiency of vitamins A, B, C, E, Chromium, and Zinc may most likely trigger acne.
