Acne: Acne can come from many different causes. Believe it or not, it can come from the foods that you eat and from hormonal variations, excessive sweating in that area. It can be associated with other medical conditions such as being overweight, etc. It's not really an inherited condition, if you will.Your parents' good skin really has no bearing on yours.
