Acne and dilated pores
In the past, acne was perceived as a normal part of adolescence, while today acne affects many adults. It is considered as an unsightly skin condition that must be treated or avoided because of its negative impact on one’s quality of life and self-esteem. Acne generally appears on the face, chest and back. It provokes different types of lesions: whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, cysts and dilated pores. If acne inflammation persists, it may leave traces on the skin: red marks, hyperpigmentation, rough patches, and hollow scars. Acne may be genetic, hormonal, or infectious, and is sometimes linked to diet, stress or the dysfunction of sebaceous glands.
