What is Acne?
Acne is an incredibly common disorder. It is a myth that it is only problem of teenage years; many adults are troubled by acne as well. Acne is frustrating and leads to emotional distress and low self esteem. It makes people depressed and withdrawn around others.
What causes Acne?
Acne is caused by occlusion (clogging) of skin pores which leads to overgrowth of bacteria, pus, inflammation and pain. Untreated acne can leave scars and persistent redness of the skin.
Acne is NOT caused by foods and does not reflect poor hygiene (in fact, aggressive soaps and scrubbing may worsen acne).
