Acne is a skin disorder that causes a variety of blemishes on the skin, including blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, nodules, and cysts. Acne can affect any part of the skin but is most common in areas with lots of oil glands like the face, chest, back, neck, upper arms, shoulders and buttocks. Acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States, affecting some 80 percent of preteens and teenagers. It also appears to be impacting more and more adults, though the reasons for this increase aren’t clear. I invite you to watch our free presentation about this subject which will teach you the right ways to deal with ACNE
