Acne is a very common condition in adolescents, which can sometimes persist into adulthood. It is characterised by "spots" on the face, and sometimes on the back and chest. The first characteristic symptoms of acne are the appearance of blackheads and whiteheads, followed by redness.

Skin hygiene

Skin hygiene with products suitable for acne-prone skin is essential. It is preferable to clean affected areas with a suitable cleansing gel, or specific micellar water, and cosmetic products labelled “non-comedogenic” should be used.

Hydrotherapy treatments can be a useful supplement: they have been shown to be effective in the treatment of inflammatory acne. They are useful to reduce the inflammatory component, alleviating the redness of lesions and scars and providing comfort to the skin.

Psychological management

The inflammatory form of acne can be difficult to tolerate. It is important not to underestimate its impact on quality of life and to seek psychological care if necessary. It is preferable to seek medical advice before considering any treatment. In milder forms, topical treatment is often sufficient, combined with a suitable moisturising cream as the treatment often dries out the skin.
