By Angela Palmer:

As an adult onset acne sufferer myself, I know firsthand the discomfort and embarrassment acne can bring. I truly believe education is the key when it comes to clearing your skin. The more knowledge you have. the more empowered you will feel. And the better choices you will make when it comes to the health of your skin.
