acne is genetic, but what you wash your face with can control it, I am currently trying proactive solution, if u are allergic to sulfer don't use it, my neck broke out in a rash so I avoid putting it on my neck. avoid foods that are making you breakout, milk is good for you and can help u live long unless your allergic but it also has a hormone that aids in acne, skim milk is the worst.
