What is Acne?
Acne occurs when your hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin. It’s often associated with the hormonal shifts that come with adolescence and puberty, but can appear during other stages of life. Your sensitivity to acne could also be genetic.
In addition to being uncomfortable, acne can have an unfortunate social stigma. Some people with acne have reported that their quality of life has been affected. Some report feeling low self-esteem and social anxiety, interfering with their ability to live each day to the fullest.
