So, how do you know if you have acne vulgaris? It is as obvious as the nose on your face. Do you have red inflammations, often raised above the level of the skin, large pores, whiteheads, and other inflammations? Most likely, you have acne vulgaris. Acne vulgaris at its worse causes scarring and social isolation, but it never threatens life. Outbreaks often result from time periods of intense stress, poor diet, and hormonal change. Treatments of acne vulgaris also include all natural formulas and lifestyle changes. In fact, happiness is one of the greatest factors in acne, according to many holistic approaches. They claim that simply staying positive and cheerful will help reduce unwanted acne.
