As the monsoon is just around the corner, acne is a major skin concern.

increased sebaceous activity.
Other reason for the acne is due to change in hormones. Chin and jawline
acne are often hormonal, that means a disruption with your endocrine system.
Its typically a result of excess androgens, which overstimulate the oil glands
and clog pores.

How to manage acne?

treatment and a good home care.
