How acne appears?
Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder characterized by lesions, which can take form of pimples, whiteheads or blackheads, which mostly appear on parts of the body where the production of sebum is increased. This includes the face, especially the region around the nose, forehead and chin, shoulders, back and chest.
This skin problem is not dangerous but it can be very frustrating because it disrupts the appearance and sometimes even leaves permanent scars.
