Yes, some people are lucky enough that they don’t have to worry about nasty zits at all while others only get the occasional but still unwelcome zit. But there are also those unlucky ones that suffer from severe acne breakouts.

As you may already know, acne vulgaris is a condition that presents as red, swollen bumps on the skin as hair follicles are plugged with oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. So, you scrub away, thinking that deep cleaning or exfoliating your skin is what you need to do.
