Reduce breakouts and manage your mild, moderate or severe acne for a clear, healthy, even toned complexion. Acne is a common skin condition characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, deep nodules and painful cysts. While acne is often associated with adolescents and teenagers, it affects people of all ages—with both men and women suffering adult-acne breakouts. Acne most often appears on the face, neck, chest and back and may be mild, moderate or severe.
Many factors contribute to acne, including hormone production, hormonal imbalances and a genetic predisposition. Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands overproduce oil and mix with dead skin cells to clog the pores. Bacteria (P. Acnes) thrives in this environment; resulting in inflamed skin with active pustules and pimples. Your skin may be tender and sore with marked dehydration and flakiness.
