Acne

Acne is a disorder of the skin’s sebaceous glands that affects over 80% of the population aged 14-30. Although commonly considered to be an adolescence problem, in fact, adult-onset acne is becoming increasingly common.

Acne is a characterised by comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and pus-filled spots (pustules). Though not life-threatening, acne is a potentially disfiguring skin disease. It affects the glands in the skin which secrete the natural lubrication (sebum) for the hair follicles and surrounding skin, which are located in greatest concentrations on your face, back, shoulders and chest. 

Acne can develop for the first time in people in their late twenties or even the thirties.

It usually starts at puberty and varies in severity from a few spots, to a more serious problem that may be embarrassing, affect self-confidence and cause scarring.
