Acne is a disease that affects the skin’s oil glands. The small holes in your skin (pores) connect to oil glands under the skin, through a canal called a follicle. When the follicle of a skin gland clogs up, a pimple grows.

Acne is the most common skin disease affecting up to 50M people annually (AAD). An estimated 80-85 percent of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 have acne outbreaks at some point (AAD). Some people in their forties and fifties still get acne.

Best options to treat acne are using “noncomedogenic,” “nonacnegenic” products for personal care, along with nutrition and stress management, suited to your individual needs. Note: Understanding the cause of your acne helps control it.
