Acne is a skin condition that is frequent among teenagers and young adults. However, it might remain till adulthood. Statistics have shown that approximately 85% of teenagers are distressed by acne sooner or later during adolescence. The impacts of acne vary from person to person, and one might end up with severe problems such as depression and anxiety due to poor self-image.
