sebaceous glands
sebaceous glands connecte to the hair follicles. There is no hair follicle without sebaceous glands.
In facial  skin exist 800 sebaceous glands in

square centimeter.

epithelium cell in hair follicles falling from the wall of the follicle, they become sticky from the  sebaceous and begin to stick into blocks so they block the passage of sebaceous to the skin surface.

 mixture of the sebaceous and keratin causes bacteria that usually exist on  the skin to multiply in the blocked follicle.

It is known that sex hormones stimulate the cells on the hair canal walls, causing  to create keratin and sebaceous .  blocking  hair canal causes  create inflammation.
Number of difficult cases in males is 57 percent , but only  22 percent  for girls .

 The Nutrition conection
 milk conection
Most likely that the cause of teenage acne is the creation of a hormone 5α-dihydrotestosterone which cause skin fats .
Cow's milk contains hormones like progesterone, 5 alpha-reductase, other hormones that can make the hormone Dihydrotestosterone. These hormones are exist in  cow's milk and special when  cows are pregnant. About 75 to 90 percent of market milk come from such milk. The enzymes that necessary for making the dihydrotestosterone hormones are exist in the skin glands .
Another assumption is that eating plenty of dairy products increases the level of the hormone insulin-like growth factor -1 which  attributed the promotion of hyperkeratinization acne by blocking the hair canal follicle causing the creation of bacterial infection, from  Propionibacterium bacteria.

Eating refined carbohydrates like white flour products and sugars leads to elevated insulin and creating the hormone insulin-like growth factor in the body.Later it becomes hormone testosterone which cause secreting  sebaceous .
sebaceous  as we remember  create bacteria and inflammation..The hormoneinsulin-like growth factor cause skin to reproduce themselves  called keratinocytes
And create acne.
