Do you know that Genetics is majorly responsible for adult ACNE? Research has shown that genetics is mostly responsible for adult acne(about 81%).Researchers at the ST. Thomas Hospital conducted a large study on the influence of genetics on twins' acne; 458 pairs of identical female twins and 1099 pairs of fraternal twins paricipated.They discovered that 81% of the difference in acne between pairs was attributed to Genetics.the remaining 19% was attributed to environmental factors such as diet and climate.more interesting is the fact that how easy one scars as a result of acne is also determined by genetics......now the puzzle is HOW DO YOU TELL GENETICS ACNE FROM OTHERS?.............................................................................................................................................

Genetics can predispose you to acne but not cause it. There's always something you can do to make it better.
