There are people who in their thirties or forties suffer from Acne.

The most common areas where Acne appears are on the face,upper neck. It may also in some cases appear on the chest,back and shoulders. The most important gift of Acne is it leaves heavy scars as it disappears. It is really so embarrassing (the scars and the Acne itself) that some go to all extremes and sometimes get into depression and other mental problems.

Acne usually appears in Adolescents as a result of changes in the body meaning increase in the sex hormones. But it can also appear in babies, older people. There is no age bar for this skin problem.
