Who gets it?

If you suffer from acne, you're by no means alone - around 80% of people get it at some point in their lives.

Acne affects both sexes, most commonly during puberty as the body becomes really sensitive to particular hormones called androgens. Androgens cause the skin's glands to produce too much oil and the skin cells to shed irregularly, triggering a breakout of spots.

Males tend to have more severe acne during their teenage years, but females often continue to have breakouts around periods.

Acne isn't confined to teenagers though - adults get it too; it's not uncommon for people to develop acne for the first time later in life.
