Doctor :   Acne usually occurs when sebaceous glands [oil secreting glands in the skin] develop around puberty stimulated by male hormones from the adrenal glands of both boys and girls
User :   so u r a general physician?
Doctor :   yep
Doctor :   Oil is a natural substance which lubricates and protects the skin. In some cases cells that are close to the surface block the openings of these glands and cause oil to buildup underneath. This stimulates the growth of bacteria, [which normally live in everyone's skin and generally cause no problems], to multiply and cause surrounding skin to become infected
