If you made it through your teens without a breakout, consider yourself something of a unicorn.
Acne is a skin condition that affects most of us at some point in our life. But the ones who bear the brunt most of the time are teens. With their hormonal changes and growth spurt, acne is another thorn in their side.
For our teenagers, their appearance becomes so important and they want to look their best, and that’s when acne begins to appear. Some teens seem unfazed by acne. For most teenagers, however, this especially visible skin problem can be upsetting and can really affect a teen’s self-confidence.
According to The National Institutes for Health, acne affects an estimated 80 % of people between the ages of 11 and 30 years. And this is not restricted to the face only. Acne can appear on your chest, back and shoulders.
