Acne is caused by environmental, dietary or hormonal fluctuations and is characterized by large red bumps, white pimples or blackheads on the face and body. This dermatological disorder varies from person to person and can come and go during a person's lifetime. It is common to have bouts of acne during puberty, although it can develop at any stage of life. A healthy diet and stress-management routine can help calm acne. Always check with your dermatologist before you begin any self-treatment to heal your acne.
