There’ s an excessive secretion of oils from the sebaceous glands combines with an abnormal response to normal levels of the male hormone, testosterone. Sebum which normally drains to the surface gets blocked and bacteria begins to grow, creating a spot.

A moisture of lemon, water and honey can be helpful.
