Acne (pimples) are common in teenagers. During adolescence, under the influence of sex hormones, oil glands (sebaceous glands) of skin start producing more oil. Enlarged pores of oil glands appear on the skin. Acne happens when these oily pores get blocked. This blockage occurs when “keratin”, the protein under the outer layer of our skin hardens.

Fairness & Pigmentation
To briefly know what pigmentation is, it refers to the colouring of the skin due to a pigment that is produced by specialised cells in our body that produce melanin. When these cells are damaged or unhealthy, it affects the production of melanin. Undesirable dark discolouration of face or body skin is an outcome of pigmentation problems. Pigmentation is a common concern with Indian skin.
