So will I clear up cuz of genetics?

My parents have clear skin,no adult acne.

Do we inherit acne through genetics?

lots of people say they do, but i am not really so sure.

both of my parents said they never had any acne at all, and my brother who is 17 doesn't have it either.. so i guess i just got lucky, oh joy.

and no, i'm not adopted.

these things tend to skip generations sometimes ... i bet if you go back a couple of generations someone else would have experienced acne as you are in your family.

Neither of my parents had acne but my uncle did, although he didn`t treat his with accutane like i did so hasn`t got any scars. Accutane didn`t even work for me and made my skin worse but thats another story. My brother has adult acne.... i hate this damn disease
