i'm sorry but i really don't think that thats true, i'm not sure about arabs but i know that their are heaps of dark skinned people that get acne.

as far as sensitive skinned goes, well the most common skin type to get acne is oily/combination, however sensitive skin can be prone to acne also due to easy irritation. so you should probably use gentle products, particularly things that won't dry out your skin.

I have sensitive skin, and even though i am on accutane now, i have discovered that a big part of the reason i broke out was because i washed both at night and in the morning. I've conjured into washing at night only with gentle working products, and in the mornings i put moisturizer where i need it.

Already (minus the accutane) I can see a difference in how the skin around my eyes and forehead look. The texture seems to be "healing".

I know you could say it is the accutane, but i swear its not since i see how my face is everyday.
