Millions of young Americans suffer with acne. Acne is a common, chronic skin condition caused by inflammation of oil-producing sebaceous glands. Acne breakouts are most common on the face, but they can also occur on the back, shoulders, neck, chest, scalp, upper arms, and legs. Acne develops when skin cells don’t shed properly. Instead, they stick together and clog up the pores. This blockage encourages an oil called sebum and bacteria called Propionibacterium (P. acnes) to build up in the skin pores, leading to inflammation. This oil is produced by the sebaceous glands.
Unfortunately, acne is not easy to treat. Traditional therapies have a variety of side effects and sometimes require months to work, if they work at all.
