Acne is a common skin problem that usually appears in outbreaks on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Although most often associated with adolescence, acne can affect men and women of any age. Women are particularly prone to acne as their hormone levels change during pregnancy, when starting birth control pills or just before a menstrual cycle.
