What Causes Acne Flare-ups?

Acne is typically caused by a combination of genetic factors, irritants, and stress. Often, you can blame several of these issues when you experience a flare-up. When flare-ups occur, signs of acne become hard to ignore. Face and forehead breakouts can be especially prominent and troubling. Typical signs include the appearance of whiteheads, blackheads, bumpy skin texture, and tender lumps on the skin.
