Acne is the term used to describe a skin condition characterised by plugged pores (in the form of blackheads and whiteheads), pimples, and even deeper lumps like cysts and nodules.

Acne can occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and even upper arms.

Affecting most teenagers to some extent, acne is not restricted to any age group. Adults in their 20s, 30s, and even in their 40s can experience acne.
