Background info (you can skip reading this if you want) So basicly started having mild/moderate acne since 2009/2010 (i was 18 then) mild/moderate acne. First year of Uni (2010) i ate like crap, kfc and mcdonalds every meal for literally a whole year. Im not even kidding every meal for a year i ate
