Approximately 85% of all teens deal with acne - some more severe than others.
The actual cause of teen acne is a hormonal imbalance that causes an overproduction of skin oil called sebum. Excess sebum together with dead skin cells and dirt will clog pores. When you add bacteria to this mix – an inflammation cascade may occur, and the pimples will show up on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders.
Acne symptoms may vary from mild to severe and not all of them disappear by them-selves when the individual cross to adulthood.
Unfortunately adult acne is on a rise and, in addition, leaving teen acne untreated may lead not only to chronic adult acne but also to acne scars and marks.
