Dear Dominic1989 It is not true that avoiding oily food helps in controlling pimples. These are caused by hormonal influence (a sort of imbalance) and infection by certain types of bacteria. Gentle cleansing with soap free face-wash packs, reduce use of cosmetics and proper oral intake of prescribed medicine to set right imbalance if any can help a lot in prevention and flare-up. To prevent scarring, one should desist from poking the skin lesions with nails or scrubbers.

I used to have lots of big pimples until 4 years ago. And I think that was because I touched and pinched them so much then tried a lot of cosmetic stuff. It only started to disappear when I stop pinching them, not wearing any make-up, and wash my face with fruity soap. I never had this problem anymore since until today, my face skin back to normal as well, those scars actually will eventually disappear after few years, and I'm very happy. Mmmm and one thing that I found weird but I keep on doing is rubbing my face with fresh lime. I'm not really sure what the idea is for lol, but it makes my skin always smooth and if I had any little pimple that is just starting to grow, it will actually dries it up so quick and makes it goes away faster.

There are many scar removal therapies now but they are rather expensive. At certain points in our lives we really end up getting a lot of these pimples because of hormones and not necessarily because of what we eat. Also, even if you don't touch your skin, air pollution will still get to your face
