Acne is far and away the most commonly shared skin condition amongst individuals throughout the United States, with up to 60 million individuals each year suffering from acne-related issues. Acne is caused by clogged hair follicles beneath the epidermis. Sebum (a fluid that prevents skin from drying out) and dead skin cells clog pores, causing lesions commonly known as pimples or zits. Typically, outbreaks appear on the face, but they can also occur on the back, chest, and shoulders.
