Okay, I work in the beauty/cosmetic industry so everything I'm about to say is coming from that and what I've learned from working with several skincare lines (such as Murad and Dermalogica). Anyway there are SEVERAL causes for acne, most often related to either genetic and/or stress. Genetic acne is possible and also is maintanable. There are triggers, such like stress that also may produce acne. Other causes include diet- such as not drinking enough water clogs your pores and we all know eating a lot of foods high in fat and oil will create build up, furthering breakouts. It's great you use Bare Minerals (I sell and use that), but hopefully you wash it off! We hate that the commercial says "so good you can sleep in it", b/c that's still bad for your skin. Anyway, it will go away when you use the right products to get rid of it. Basically you get what you pay for (like there are products that work but they can be costly).
