How are acne and pimples caused?

Expert Answer:

With the onset of puberty, there is an increase in the secretion of oil and sweat glands. When there is excessive secretion of these body fluids, the oil and sweat along with cellular debris collect in the glands. The growth of bacteria in these blocked pores results in the formation of acne and pimples.
