Treat the Problem with Effective Home Remedies for Acne Scars
Acne is a common skin disorder, not a threat to your health though, but it leaves scars. It occurs due to surge in hormones levels during puberty. During an acne attack, the skins oil glands overproduce large amounts of sebum, or oil, which tend to block the opening of the pores, and lead to the formation of whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and nodules. It leaves scars on the face if left untreated.
