Acne is one of the most widespread skin conditions that exists. It causes pimples and spots, especially on your face, shoulders, neck, back, chest, and upper arms. There are few different types of acne but the most common may include spots such as whiteheads and blackheads, or more severe spots like nodules and cysts. Acne is not dangerous, but it may leave skin scars.
It commonly starts appearing during puberty and, for the majority, it usually disappear by the late teens or early twenties. However, it may persist for longer in some people. Women are more likely than men to have mild to moderate acne into their 30s and beyond. If your skin tends to be oily, you may be more prone to have this condition.
