When comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), the initial stages of acne are not treated, they evolve to become big, unsightly and get deeper into skin increasing the tendency for marks and scars. With prompt treatment, not only the new eruptions are prevented but also the greasiness in face get reduced.
Lastly, the possibility of scars and pigmentation of the skin is greatly reduced, thus saving the skin from losing its shine and smoothness.

The other causes could be usage of inferior cosmetics, smoking, drugs etc. Recent Dermatological journals have revealed that even diet consisting of high fat and dairy content may be a reason behind acne.
