I believe acne is rooted in phytogenetics.
From Ancient Greek φυτόν (phutón, “plant”).
Plants utilize photosynthesis in a similar chemical process as our skin cells. 90% of your body is covered with only the face and hands exposed (or exterior limbs). The trunk (hands, arms, legs) have less secretory glands and are exposed to sunlight and tan. Whereas the face has more subaceous glands that produce antioxidants and phosopholipids that protect mitochondrial (the engine of cells) from oxidative damage. The more oil produced unfortunately means more waste, clogged pores, and a bacterial meal, = acne.
