  • A mere 11% of acne sufferers seek advice or help
  • Acne is considered a social taboo”


Acne Affects Both Teenagers and Adults. While acne is usually a term which will bring teenagers in your mind, it is not confined to the teenage years of ones life. Adult acne is a lot more widespread than you might have initially thought. It is believed that 25% of men and 50% of women will suffer from acne at some point during their adult lives. Adults can suffer from acne at anytime, it is not something to be ashamed of, and it can affect men or women as old as 40 and above. Adult acne can be as serious as teenage acne in that it can cause depression and social anxiety.”


“Hot Zone For Acne. Acne will most likely appear on the forehead, nose and chin however, it can occur just about anywhere such as your scalp, neck, shoulders, chest and legs.”
” Acne Is The Most Common Problem Acne is one of the most common medical problems in the world, it is so common that 30% of people who visit the dermatologist will be there because of an acne related problem.
