    What causes acne?

    • A.


    • B.


    • C.


    • D.


    Correct Answer
    B. Hormones
    Hormones are the main cause of acne. During puberty, hormonal changes cause the sebaceous glands to produce more oil, which can clog pores and lead to acne. Hormones also play a role in regulating the skin's inflammatory response, which can contribute to the development of acne. While stress, diet, and other factors can potentially aggravate acne, hormones are the underlying cause.
