Teen (Acne Care)

Acne is a disorder of the hair follicles and sebaceous glands (oil producing glands),which usually begins around puberty when boys and girls have increased androgen hormones (testosterone). Most teenagers get some form of acne and it is estimated that 80-90% of people between the ages of 11 and 30 suffer with this condition. Unfortunately, even older adults in their 40´s and 50´s can develop acne, which can be related to hormones, childbirth, stopping oral contraceptives and menopause.
