Acne, also known as zits or pimples, is a skin condition that occurs when your pores become clogged with oil, dead skin cells and bacteria which leads to inflammation. The increased hormones produced during puberty increase oil production and feed the process. Acne is a common condition, especially in teenagers, but can also affect middle-aged adults and babies. Approximately 80% of teenagers will be affected by acne and it can have a big impact on self image and confidence.
Acne isn’t generally a threat to your physical health, but it carries a big emotional burden. There is no single best treatment for acne, and usually a combinations of treatments are recommended.
