Acne is commonly recognised as pimples on your face, neck, sometimes back and other parts of your body too. These pimples are usually red, inflamed and infected, and can lead to scarring of skin as well as emotional distress affecting one’s self-esteem.
Acne is usually a right of passage through puberty, caused by hormonal changes. It is also caused by having naturally oily skin, or a build-up of dead skin cells clogging pores and at times, infected by bacteria which leads to red, inflamed, often painful cysts and pustules. In adulthood, other factors can cause acne outbreaks, such as a different set of changing hormones, poor diet, or stress factors.
