Why do we have to refer to acne as "problem skin" or "bad skin"? My skin isn't bad or a problem; it's just my skin, and I'm fucking tired of being made to feel like I should be ashamed of it.

The one advantage of getting farther away from your younger years is not having to shop in the acne section of the local drugmart. However, for many of us, dotting our skin with cream-coloured promises of better skin and less breakouts is still a common habit. In order to finally break free from blemishes it's important to know what causes it and what you can do about it.
