cause acne.

I asked my derm this question I said to him " if you dont wash your face or any other part of the body that has acne present, does it worsen the active acne that you already have" and i also asked "if you dont have any active acne in one area but have had some in that area in the past, will it cause acne that wouldnt be there otherwise", he told me NO, it is all controlled by hormones/

Well, i reconize some days when i am busy and have things to do or i am just lazy and dont wash my face as soon as i wake up in the morning and wait a few hours, i usually break out worse than the days that i wash my face right after i wake up in the morning. I do a very oily face, so im thinking that the sebum itself can cause acne.

What do you guys think???

If you don't wash your face, your face builds up dust and dirt which combined with your facial oils can clog your pores, leading to pimples/blackheads.
