Acne: Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders. It is made worse by hormonal fluctuations (such as puberty and menstrual cycle). Try using a good scrub brush and a topical anti-acne medicated soap for your back.
