Something almost everyone gets at one time or another. It's most common in adolescents who are going through puberty, and is due to the abundance of hormones flowing through their bodies. Usually it starts in early teens and ends in the early to late twenties, occasionally it will extend past thirty and sometimes even into someones forties or fifties.

Acne is not due to dirt, oily foods, or chocolate/sugar. Milk has been linked to increase in acne, however. Stress/anger can cause hormonal changes which can cause acne. Excessive touching of the face is also a bad idea. Genetics also play a key role.

Washing ones face will help, however people who have acne don't necessarily not wash their faces. If the case is especially serious, one should consult a doctor to be put on an anti-acne drug. Common ones include: Erythromycin, tetracycline, and clindamycin.
Bobby has had acne since he was 12. He's on a topical, and oral solution. He visits a dermatologist every two months. He still gets acne though, i'm glad i don't have his gene pool.

a skin condition where pores become clogged and an inflammation appears on the skin...almost all people suffer from it at some point and, unlike popular believe, doesn't make someone unattractive and isn't a social disease
The girl with acne was so intriguing and insightful, I didn't even notice she had any acne.

A gay skin condition probably caused by all the crap the FDA let's food distributors put in our food that causes red bumps to come up on your face, back, chest, and sometimes your arms. Sometimes acne is so bad that some people (Like me) have to go on Accutane only to be let down by it 5 months later because your acne is so severe and you got conjuctivitis and bloody pores for nothing.
Dermatologist: Okay, well since the Proactive, the deoxyzyfane and the other thing I can't pronounce hasn't worked for your acne for more than a month, I guess I'll put you on something else...

Bobbie: Okay...

Dermatologist: It's called Profynozylophate (Cough) Accutane (Cough)

Bobbie: Alright...

Dermatologist: Side effects are nothing, just you might contract conjunctivitis (Cough) or have your pores bleed, lose some hair, or in some rare causes might die since it nukes your face.

Bobbie: I didn't hear anything you said

Dermatologist: Well it wasnt important anyway so when can we get you on it?

A horrible skin condition which causes puss-filled pockets under your skin to form, often times becoming red and inflamed. The condition may be alleviated by using topical acne creams/wash/pads consisting of salycilic acid or benzoyl peroxide. However, for some people, their acne tends to be fucking gay and never really go away, even temporarily. As a result, those suffering from it will feel like shit and want to kill themselves because their face is hideous and unattractive (remember, the face makes the picture).
dude 1: dude, what the fuck happened to your face?!

dude 2: got that right asshole, I hate my life

Nature's way of telling you that you are not quite ready for sex.

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.
