Acne is a systemic inflammatory disease that can occur in virtually anyone at almost any stage of his or her life. The good news is acne can be controlled with Dr. Perricone’s three-tiered approach to healthy aging and beautiful skin.

Understanding that acne is a product of cellular inflammation is the first step in preventing and treating it. Dr. Perricone recommends following the anti-inflammatory diet, taking targeted nutritional supplements and applying anti-inflammatory topical treatments daily.
