Body of these antigens testosterone is the most commonly implicated hormone the sebaceous glands which are the oil forming glands of the face have certain receptors to which these hormones bind after these hormones bind it’s too late increased sebum production increased oil production from this gland and thereby leading to formation of a canoe so hard one alack

Nia does not usually mean that there is increasing the level of hormones in the body it is not necessary for the levels of hormones to be increased in the body as if there is something called end receptor hypersensitivity when the levels of hormones in the body might be normal but the sensitivity of the wife only glands are higher this can increase the chances
