When hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin then pimples, whiteheads and blackheads appear in the skin; this disease is termed as acne. Acne usually occurs in that part of skin where a number of oil glands are relatively more that include the face, back and upper part of the chest. Acne problem is usually more in women than men. Along with acne issue generally, redness and irritation come with it. We can avoid acne problem by doing some changes in our daily routine.
