Acne affects both teenagers and adults. It is one of the most common skin problems in the United States. Acne begins to form when a pore starts to fill up with dead skin and oil. Normally your skin will shed the surface cells preventing acne from forming. When the skin’s function is compromised it no longer functions properly and treatment is necessary to reduce the acne inflammation and prevent future breakouts. Some women develop acne when they hit middle age, this is referred to “adult-onset acne” Acne can be triggered by several things including, fluctuating hormone levels, stress, skin products and excess oil production.
