Acne Facts

Acne is a disease that affects the skin's oil glands.There are small holes in your skin called "pores", that connect to your oil glands. These glands make an oily substance called sebum. The pores connect to glands by a canal called a follicle. Inside the follicles, oil carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin. When the follicle clogs up, a pimple then forms.
