Natural Remedies for Acne

What is Acne?

Acne Symptoms

Acne occurs in 2 related forms, Acne vulgaris and Acne rosacea.

Acne Vulgaris

Acne Vulgaris is a common condition of the skin mostly occurring in people between the ages of 10 and 50. It affects mostly the face, trunk, shoulders and back and is caused by an alteration in the skin's response to sex hormones. The effect of that is to produce blackheads that often develop into large unsightly pus filled cysts (cystic acne)that may produce scars on healing. This frequently causes profound psychological upset because of the appearance of the spots and acne scars. It is common in the Teens.

Acne Rosacea

Rosacea is a less common condition than acne vulgaris that predominantly affects the faces of middle aged people. Women are more commonly affected than men but the problem is often more severe in men. There are no blackheads or whiteheads but an overall reddening of the skin is very marked.
