Start > Resource centre > Articles > Dealing with acne Part 1

Acne is one of the most common of all skin problems. It probably causes more distress than any other skin complaint.

Although it is traditionally thought of as a teenagers' complaint, acne also affects men and women in their 20s, 3Os and even 40s.

One recent report suggested that as many as five per cent of people in their 40s suffer from acne. There is still a considerable amount of confusion about the best way to deal with acne.

But it is generally agreed that if you can keep the pores of your skin clean then you won't develop acne spots.

The simplest way to keep your pores clean is to wash your skin regularly and thoroughly with a slight rough abrasive.

You can buy special abrasive pastes made up of exotic constituents such as strawberries or ground almonds, but you don't have to spend lots of money in order to wash out your pores properly. All you really need is a rough face cloth or a fairly soft brush. But do remember that it must be clean.
