Zits Causes

Main cause of zits is excess sebum or oil production

Zits are mainly caused due to the excessive production of sebum, a type of oil generated by the sebaceous glands. The sebum blocks the hair follicles and the pores of the skin with oil, dead skin and bacteria. This creates a protrusion on the skin known as acne, zits, blackheads or white heads. The protrusion may or may not be filled with pus.

The main causes that lead to an excessive production of sebum are:

- Hormonal imbalance during puberty and pre menstrual cycle
- Intake of oily, fatty and fried foods
- Hereditary skin disorder
- Use of cosmetics that affect the skin
