Acne is a very common skin condition in Australia impacting upon 85% of individuals typically aged from 15-25 years old. Our bodies are naturally producing hormones continuously, and such hormones stimulate oil glands in our skin to produce sebum. When excessive amounts of sebum are produced the skins oil glands can become blocked leading to the development of acne. Factors such as an individuals environment, stress level, dietary intake, hormonal imbalances and improper skin care products are common reasons for acne to become aggravated.
