Acne is a skin disease commonly found and experienced  during adolescence.

In adolescence, acne is usually caused by an increase in androgens (male sex hormones) These hormones stimulate the production of keratin and sebum. For the most part, acne breakouts stop after one reaches their early twenties. There is no way to know the time it will take for acne to disappear.

Some people will carry acne well into their thirties, forties, and beyond. Acne vulgaris (or cystic acne) is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of skin with seborrhea (scaly red skin), comedones (blackheads and white heads), pin heads, pustules (pimples), large papules and possibly scarring. Acne affects mostly skin with the densest population of sebaceous follicles; these areas include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back. Severe acne is inflammatory, but acne can also manifest in other forms. The lesions are caused by changes in pilosebaceous units, skin structures consisting of a hair follicle and its associated sebaceous gland, changes that require androgen stimulation.
