Acne, scientifically known as Acne Vulgaris, is a human skin disease. This disease, generally known as pimples, is most commonly found in the adolescence, the period of puberty, and hence, most people affected by acne are teenagers. Acne occurs when there are elevations formed in the skin, particularly, at areas which are rich in fats (eg: the face). There are depressions formed in the skin, which contain fat hormones from sebaceous glands, and these secretions, in turn, bring out elevated papules in the skin, called acne.
