Is fighting acne a losing battle? “Far from it”, says our Dermatologist Dr. Irene Williams, who explodes a few myths and takes you through the latest treatments.
Acne Vulgaris, commonly known as “zits” or “pimples” are a frequent and distressing problem in the adolescent age group. Acne occurs due to inflammation of the oil glands present under the skin, which get activated by hormones, at the onset of puberty. Genes also play a role in determining how prone a person is to acne. Our environment(heat, dust and humidity) is another contributing factor.
