Brief Answer:
Reasons for acne

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us,

I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist).
I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.

Common causes of flare of acne/ pimples are hormonal imbalance e.g PCOD in females, hot/humid weather, oily/greasy cosmetics, stress, certain medications like oral steroids etc.

In general, acne is more common in those who also have an oily skin.

Let me know if I could assist you further,

Regards
