Statement #2 is false. Some people grow out of acne when their acne was only a result of the raging hormones during puberty.

hmmmmm. well, i only agree with number 4 because over washing can cause irritation. but as for all the others, they seem pretty true from my point of view.

Not necessarily, Testosterone levels in males are at their peak during adolescence/puberty. They eventually lower once puberty is over..

Thumbs down

Stress can definitely aggrevate acne and some people are lucky enough to outgrow their acne. And no, there is no cure but it can be controlled and some people have luck with changing their diets. The only thing I agree with is #4.

I got that information on the internet that what the people said that research acne. I alway's thought that stress cause acne but they said it was just a myth.

Acne is caused by stress. But acne is not caused by diet, which is what a lot of teens seem to think. It's too bad.
