Acne can make many teenagers and adults feel self-conscious and turn to an endless fight with products to try to attain clear skin.

Acne can be treated and significantly improved by seeing a skin care expert as soon as possible.
An introduction to acne
Again we will talk about what is acne? This is a skin condition that arises particularly in boys and girls who are in their teenage years and unfortunately affect adults as well. You might have seen pores that are openings of small skin glands. These glands secrete oily components on the skin. If too much oil content is produced then these skin pores then they get blocked or closed. Then bacteria, debris are produced in these closed pores due to which boils and pimples are seen on the facial skin. These boils may also appear as black or white head. Acne may also appear on your face in the form of red spots. In some conditions pimples may also arise due to inflammation of the facial skin.
Why do acne and pimples arise?
There are many risk factors to acne which include genetics, hormonal changes, food allergies/intolerances, stress and certain medications. It’s often the case that acne is caused due to hormonal changes in the human body. As a teenager when you have changes in the hormones, then the production of oily substances in the skin glands increases. In teenage boys and girls, acne may be caused due to puberty. Even stress, birth control pills, hormone imbalances and pregnancy might be the reason for pimples and acne.
