A skin condition in which pores become clogged and inflamed with sebum, the natural oil that your skin produces. This inflammation leads to pus, bacteria, and redness in the affected area.
Usually occurring in varying degrees in the teenage years because of hormones, but can show up in adults as well. There is also a strong genetic component to acne.
There is no cure for acne, only treatment, which ranges from salicylic acid to the more serious accutane.
Check out acne.org for a regimen that really helps clear up skin. Trust me, it works well if you follow it.
Dude 1: That dude had huge acne all over his face, that must really make him feel like shit.
Dude 2: Yeah dude, but accutane helps acne even though your skin gets so dry your lips bleed and if you get pregnant your baby will have a tail.
Dude 1: Dude yeah accutane helps but didn't fully clear it for me dude. I used 2.5% benzoyl peroxide and lotion twice a day and that helped loads. You should check out acne.org for a good regimen using this formula dude.
