Acne is a name liable to instil fear in many of us, perhaps unsurprising given it’s the most common skin complaint in the world. It occurs when the sebaceous glands in your hair follicles become clogged with excess oil (“sebum”). Bacteria builds up in the skin, usually in the face, neck and back, and this triggers a break-out of pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. In the most severe episodes, it can also lead to cysts or nodules. “Pitted” scarring is a potential, long-term consequence of acne.
Almost everyone suffers from this inflammatory disease at some point in their lives. It’s especially prevalent among teenagers and pregnant women, which is when our bodies undergo a series of hormonal changes. That said, acne can still strike anyone at any age, both men and women.
