Acne can be a real problem for sufferers.The condition, which can appear as spots or raised bumps on the face or body is common, particularly in teenagers, but can last well into adulthood.The good news is that it is usually treatable.

Acne is caused by excess sebum, which is produced in greater quantities in the skin at puberty, blocking the pores.This can result in blackheads and whiteheads on the surface of the skin and, when the bacteria p.acnes gets trapped and multiplies, it causes inflammation below the skin.Inflamed acne needs to be treated early to prevent acne scarring.

Soothe acne inflammation by washing skin no more than twice daily using a mild soap, lukewarm water and a soft flannel scrubs, exfoliators and astringents can aggravate the problem.You may also be advised by a doctor to use antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide, or other aids to combat the worst symptoms.
