For many of us, acne scars are one of life’s great frustrations. Acne can leave scars underneath your skin and leave the surface looking uneven and even pitted.

You love your grandparents dearly. If only you hadn’t inherited Grandpa’s nose! The United States may be famous as a melting pot, but for many of us, our cultural heritage is readily apparent.
