Acne is a condition that can strike at any age and the symptoms can be pretty demoralising for those affected. If you suffer from acne, don’t worry, you’re not alone…according to the British Skin Foundation, 80% of people between the ages of 18-30 have suffered from the condition at some point in their lives. Characterised by blackheads, whiteheads and pimples on the face, chest and back, acne is caused when skin follicles become blocked by oil or dirt. Busy lifestyle schedules, stress and poor diet are just some of the factors that may increase your chances of bad skin.
For extreme cases, it is advised that you should visit the dermatologist, and they may prescribe you antibiotic treatments such as tetracycline. However, there are other natural ways to treat the condition and Vitamin A is one of these, but how does it work?
