Ethnic Skin Acne

Acne affects every ethnicity, aside from a few remote hunter/gatherer tribes.

Hyperpigmenation: People with non-Caucasian skin tend to suffer much more with red or dark marks that linger on the skin after acne lesions heal. These marks are called hyperpigmentation.

Treatment: Acne develops and is treated in the same way regardless of skin color.
