We also know that the idea that “acne is generally expected to spontaneously regress during the late teenaged or early adulthood years” is a complete and utter lie.
There are many people still suffering from acne in their 30s, 40s and beyond.
Most of our interest in Acne is cosmetic – Most of us spend a considerable amount of time every week trying to keep our bodies looking young.

Your skin tells all. Based on this reason alone, it’s worth taking a closer look at acne.
