According to the American Academy of Dermatology*, acne affects 40 to 50 million Americans nationwide.
Acne is a skin condition characterized by raised bumps on the skin known as pimples or zits, which form due to excess oil getting trapped within pores. Acne symptoms can also include whiteheads, blackheads, and red, inflamed patches of skin. Severe cases of acne can be painful and may leave scars.
Acne occurs most often on the following areas of the skin:
Although acne usually emerges during adolescence, people can get acne at any age. While acne is not a serious medical condition, it can be debilitating in other ways, such as taking a toll on a person’s self-esteem and confidence.
The good news is acne is treatable. One of the most effective acne treatments is to keep your skin clean. We recommend gently washing your face no more than twice a day with cleanser and water.
Although regularly washing your skin will help control your acne, you’ll most likely need to take additional action to rid yourself of the skin condition.
While there are several over-the-counter products that claim to treat acne, chances are, if you’re suffering from acne, you’ve already used them and not seen the results you’re looking for.
