Acne is a very common inflammatory skin disorder. It effects
most people at some point in their lives.
It is most often seen in the teenage years, but can continue to
be a problem for many adults.
In a study published in October 1999 by the Journal of the American
Academy of Dermatology 54% of women and 40% of men suffered from
some form of acne.
That acne is just a teenager's disease is just one of the many misconceptions
associated with acne.
