It is a problem for many people.One of the main things for sure is chocolate and greasy foods don’t always cause acne nor make it worse. Keeping your face and hands clean. Keeping your hands off your face IS important! Change your pillowcase often.
My dermatologist warns a few zits are not acne! Besides genetics here are some other reasons you may develop acne.
Hormones,stress,bacteria,lack of sleep,your diet,food allergies,poor cell turnover,cosmetic related allergies and an over active sebaceous gland can cause acne flair ups.
