Acne involves pimples and blackheads, most commonly on the face, back, and chest. Acne is caused by increased oil production (typical of puberty) and bacteria, and results in inflammation.
Use only oil-free products on your face. Stores may label as “non-comedogenic” as a comedone is a pimple.
You may use a topical benzoyl peroxide over the counter product once or twice per day.
