Acne is a condition that typically is associated with puberty and does occur frequently during those years but can extend or surface during middle aged years. Acne is caused by the increased production of sebum and as a result of this increase pores become blocked by not only sebum but by dead skin cells. This results in pimples or boils that present themselves not only on the face but also on the chest, back, and upper arm area. The causes of acne are also hormonal related. To cure your acne you've got to balance your hormones. When hormones are out of balance skin oil production goes into overdrive aggravating acne.
