Acne is a chronic skin condition that causes inflamed spots on the face. Typically it is prominent in adolescent years because this is when the sebaceous glands become active.
However, acne can occur at any time of life. Acne usually affects the face, neck, shoulder, back, chest and upper arms.
Acne is caused by skin pores filling with excess material such as oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells.
Pimples appear when follicles under the skin become blocked and oil begins to build.
When the material begins to clump together then the fluid can become infected and swell resulting in pimples and spots.
Whilst acne can become a problem at any time, there are measures that can be taken to prevent breakouts or reduce the aggressiveness of acne when the inevitable happens.
