During puberty, increased secretion of male hormones, which are called androgens (also possessed by women), stimulates the secretion of sebum or fat, which keeps the skin moist, and the keratin, from which the hairs of hair are built. When excessive amounts of fat or keratin will close the hair follicle, acne appears. The fact that you will eat a cheese pizza is unlikely to affect your skin much, but what will affect – and in a positive way – is the increased input of fruits, vegetables and other foods that keep the hormones in balance and neutralizes inflammation.
