Course description

Acne Treatment & Care

Learn about acne and how to treat it successfully. Acne is famous for its prevalence during adolescence, with up to 80% of teenagers and preteens experiencing some degree of acne. But a University of Alabama study found that 46.7% adults still suffer from mild to severe acne in their 20s, 27.7% in their 30s, 19.2% in their 40s and 11.3% in their 50s. Some of these suffer from severe acne. Usually acne is not any kind of serious threat to your health, but it can be emotionally difficult to deal with, and can also leave scarring.

Those suffering from acne can have a hard time working out why they have acne or what they can do to get rid of it. This course will provide you with plenty of information about the causes of acne and show you a wide array of treatment options and advice for lifestyle and diet changes, all backed up by research.
