As if awkward moments with the opposite sex weren’t already bad enough throw an untimely break out into the mix and you may feel like you’re never going to get a hot girl or fit boy out on a date. Acne is not just a bad spot every now again though, it’s a bit more serious than that and it’s a real bummer.

Though some people say it just has to run its course many people continue to suffer with acne through university and into their adult life, not dealing with it can lead to permanent skin damage and scars. Understanding acne and some of the treatments on offer may help you to regain healthy skin and the shining confidence needed to get that date.
