Acne is a skin condition that affects 85% of teenagers and subsidizes by the time a person grows to the age of 20 years. There are many types of acne which range from zits to cystic acne. Blackheads and whiteheads are the two most common types of acne. Acne occurs when the sebum oil which is produced naturally gets clogged with dead skin cells and do not reach the skin surface. In normal circumstances the oil is excreted onto the skin and through the hair and that is why our faces tend to shine with this thin oil film. It is when the oil production increases and the dead cells do not reach the skin surface and get sloughed off that acne occurs.
