Natural and Herbal Acne Relief

As we all know, acne is a common skin disorder that afflicts adolescents and some adults. It is usually a result of male hormone increases, regardless of gender. Dead cells and oil get caught in pores, which creates blackheads. Blackheads become inflamed and infected, creating pimples and acne blemishes. About 96% of teenagers are affected by acne. Typically it attacks the face, but it can be present on the back, chest, shoulders, and anywhere else the skin has a thick density of oil follicles. Acne has been characterized by a combination of whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, red scaly areas, and scarring. Most think acne will decrease in severity and duration, and may even disappear, as the sufferer leaves teenage years behind. But some in their thirties, forties, and beyond are still plagued with breakouts. Severe forms of acne can have a devastating affect on people, destroying their self-confidence. It may affect them for years.
