Research shows that people who suffer from facial acne are most likely to suffer from back acne as well.
Acne can be a genetic problem, but it’s also caused by hormonal imbalances, poor diet, and stress.
It can even be caused by the clothes you wear. Friction between tight clothes and warm, sweaty skin creates the perfect environment for the bacteria that cause acne.
