Acne is a very common condition caused by the inflammation of grease-producing glands in the skin, leaving blocked pores (blackheads and whiteheads) and inflamed red papules and pustules, otherwise known as ‘spots’. Acne predominantly occurs during adolescence and is most commonly experienced on the face, back and chest.
Acne treatment is necessary for several reasons. Not only does the appearance of acne temporarily affect your physical appearance with pink marks, but it can lead to permanent scarring if deeper cysts are left untreated. Moreover, acne is typically associated with elevated levels of stress, unhappiness and infection.
The correlation between acne and adolescence is due to the increase in testosterone occurring in both genders during puberty. Acne can also be prompted by psychological factors such as increased stress levels, genetics and dietary habits.
