What is acne?

Acne Vulgaris or just simply acne is a common skin disorder that is not limited to teenagers. Acne forms on the skin as a result of the hair follicles in the skin becoming clogged with oil, dead skin cells and dirt. The hair follicles then become infected with bacteria and your skin inflames.

This skin condition is characterized by the formation of blackheads, whiteheads and pimples on the skin and depending on the severity it can leave mild to severe scarring.

The most common areas for acne to form is on the face, back, chest and shoulders.
