Puberty has rid us of many a concern and done us all wonders -- but those prone to acne know this unwelcome visitor comes and goes as it pleases, at any stage in life. Depending on the severity of the condition though, acne demands treatment and expert and intensive care that is to be continued religiously for however long is prescribed. This goes without saying, but it's also important that alongside clinical treatment you are taking care of your skin at home by including skincare products in your routine that keep acne in check.
