It happens to us all, we wake up one morning with a nasty intruder on our face or on our body: an ugly acne pimple! Usually caused by an excessive sebum production and clogging of the pores of the skin, acne is a skin condition that affects about 80% of teenagers, but it can also affect newborns and adults. The good news? Acne can be cured naturally! This skin disease is so common that we can find, in every drugstore, a wide range of products to remove those awful pimples and prevent their reoccurrence.
