Acne is defined as a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells which may result in the formation of whiteheads, blackheads or pimples that commonly appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders. Some of the common causes are puberty, pregnancy, menstruation, consumption of birth control pills, junk food, lack of sleep, stress, anxiety, overuse of cosmetics and staying long hours in pollution.
