Acne is a common skin condition that affects many teenagers and adults. Acnes are typically found on the face, back, chest, and upper arms. The severity of acne might range from mild to severe.
Acne, also medically referred as acne vulgaris, is a long-term skin infection that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. Acne primarily affects areas of the skin with a relatively high number of oil glands, including face, upper part of the chest, and back; and it is commonly characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. All of which might lead to excessive oily skin and permanent scarring. The resulting appearance can lead to anxiety, reduced self-esteem, and unfortunately, depression in extreme cases.
When it comes to long-term acne concerns, doctors found genetics to be the primary cause of acne in 80% of cases. However, acne can also be caused by undesired lifestyle behaviors such as smoking, diet, contact with dirt or germ, and over exposure to sunlight. Moreover, puberty also plays a significant role in the development of acne due to the sudden increase in hormones such as testosterone. As for adults, a frequent factor is excessive growth of the bacterium Propionibacterium acnes, which is normally present on the skin.
