What is Acne?

Acne is an extremely common skin condition that is linked to the changes in hormone levels during puberty, hence to it largely affecting individuals during their teenage years. However, the condition can affect individuals of any age.

Research shows that around 95% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne to some extent. In girls, the condition is most common from the ages of 14 to 17, whereas in boys it most commonly occurs between the ages of 16 to 19.

A high percentage of sufferers will have acne on and off for a number of years before the symptoms ease as they grow into adulthood, with it often completely disappearing when the individual reaches their mid-20s.

It is estimated that around 3% of adults aged 35+ will suffer from acne.

The main symptoms of acne include:
  • Spots that commonly appear on the face, back, and chest
  • Oily skin
  • Some sufferers of acne also complain that their skin is hot or painful to touch
