What is Acne?

Acne is a chronic skin condition, causing spots and pimples on the face and often on the back and chest areas. It develops when the oily substance naturally present to lubricate hair follicles and skin, combines with dead skin cells and block the tiny hair follicles, instead of draining away. This results in the production of bacteria and subsequent infection and inflammation.
