When I was growing up, I remember having acne breakouts and doing everything in my power to hide my pimples and blemishes so that others wouldn’t see them. I recall thinking that having one pimple and a tiny blemish was the end of the world. Then I would see my friends that were indeed dealing with cases of acne that were far worse than my one pimple. At one point I did everything I could to remove all of my freckles from my face due to the teasing I endured because of having hundred’s of freckles covering my face. Eventually, I grew to love my freckles, however, I know that is never the case for those who actually suffer from severe acne and they never grow to love their unwanted acne!
Wouldn’t it be amazing if those who are afflicted with acne breakouts discovered what was causing them and were able to cure them? Hopefully, the featured video accompanying this article can shed some light of possible causes.
