Different Types Of Acne & How To Get Rid Of Them
Acne. We don’t think we need to say more about how badly we dislike it. In fact, we loathe it. Unfortunately, most women and men (about 80% of the human population) are affected with this troublesome skin condition and regardless of how many products we put on our face, it just keeps coming back.
Between 40 – 50 million people in the US suffer from mild, moderate to severe acne, making it the most common skin condition in America. Although there are many factors that can cause one to breakout, acne is generally caused by overactive sebaceous glands that produce too much oil in the face. This oil later combines with skin cells to clog our pores. Because of the clogged pores, Propionibacterium acnes (the known acne-causing bacteria) multiplies and BAM, next thing we know, we have a bunch of acne to clear away.
