Gone those days when acne was known as a teenage ailment. Now acne is a common problem faced by both males and females belonging to all age groups.

However, it is not difficult to ward off acne from your life, but you have to sit tight and follow the routine without fail I am going to share with you.
Before you know how to treat acne you need to find out the root causes of the disastrous problem. As a matter of fact, acne reflects signs of poor health. In most common cases acne is grown when regular cleansing fails and your skin pores accumulate dirt, dust, sebum, organic chemicals, and on top of it makeup ultimately clogging the pores. Bacterial and fungal infections worsen the condition of the clogged pores and develop pimples or acne. Once it has started it doesn’t seem to stop. Acne affected areas can cover the entire face, neck and some other exposed parts.
The tendency of pimples is more in teenagers because when they hit puberty the hormonal dysfunctions cause producing sebum which in turn comes in contact with dead skin cells and clog the pores. Ultimately, as you know, bacteria spread the infection in nearby areas or all over the skin.
Menopause is another common reason in women to experience acne. Last but not the least, the most important factor is our current unhealthy lifestyle. Sleeplessness, stress, food habit add up to the already existing situation or even begin the situation in some cases.
