The major determining factor in who gets acne is genes, according to Albert M. Kligman, M.D., Ph.D., emeritus professor of dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia. In other words, you may have inherited a skin characteristic that makes you more likely to develop acne. You have thousands of oil glands in the skin on your face, chest, and back that lubricate tha skin by producing sebum, or oil. You have as many as 2000 oil glands per square inch in the central part of your face.
