Acne is often a mystery, no one knows what is the exact cause for which it appears; neither how long it will last nor how to end it definitively.
However, specialists have noted that recurrent acne in certain facial areas is not only a problem of closed pores, heredity or lack of hygiene, but it goes further by revealing diseases that our body suffers and of which we are not aware. This is explained by Dr. Ellen Marmur, founder of Marmur Medical.
