True False Answer: Yes
A lot of teenagers get acne when hormones increase during puberty. As hormone levels rise, the skin produces more oil, and if the oil gets trapped in the pores and doesn't drain, it can cause breakouts. The hormones also cause more bacteria on the skin and can lead to acne. For women, changes in hormone levels before menstruation can be a factor in acne. Some women experience fewer breakouts when taking birth control pills.
