What is acne?

Acne happens when the hair follicle or pore becomes clogged with oil and dead skin cells resulting in open and closed comedones, more commonly known as whiteheads and blackheads. This can escalate and become inflamed and scar if early intervention is not taken to manage the condition.

Who does it affect? Acne can affect anyone but is more commonly seen in teenagers or those going through hormonal changes.
