A few facts about acne

Studies indicate that most people experience acne in some form at some time in their life. Acne usually begins during adolescence but often continues into adulthood. Hormonal changes cause the enlargement and blocking of oil-producing sebaceous glands near the hair follicle within the skin. Acne usually begins with an abnormal amount of bacteria, mainly propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes). This typically causes painful pimples - known as inflamed pustules of acne or inflammatory acne - that can appear on the face, chest, back, limbs and virtually any other part of the body. Acne can produce life-long scars, both physically and emotionally.
