Scientists Reckon They've Found A Vaccine To Cure Acne Once And For All
To people who've never suffered with acne, it's no big deal, but if you are currently suffering or ever have battled with the skin condition, you will know that it is a deeply upsetting and personal battle... one that makes you feel ashamed, ugly, and very much in pain.

There have been all sorts of pills and over-the-counter medicines made available over the last few years - with demand becoming ever more prevalent, but experts now say that finding a way to treat the condition naturally from within may be the way forward.
Researchers from the University of California (San Diego) have made a breakthrough they claim, discovering that it’s now possible to fight the toxin secreted by the bacteria most involved in acne with a very specific antibody.
Doing so would also reduce the inflammation and redness which is often the cause of much distress for regular acne sufferers.

"The potential impact of our findings is huge for the hundreds of millions of individuals suffering from acne vulgaris."
