What are the nest home remedies for acne?

Get a real Rx: The powerful and effective remedies that scientific physicians use for acne are derivatives of vitamin a or natural antibiotics -- both gifts from mother nature. Especially if you are responsible for the emotional and physical health of a teenager, get the patient to a scientific physican -- negligence here will result in a lifetime of regrets / resentment.
