Ever wondered why certain races rarely have acne problem? In the country where I am, I still see a great number dealing with the predicament. And they are locals. I see a big population of Koreans around and most of them have very nice skin. Whatever their secret is!? There are accounts that the problem can be attributed to food allergy. Certain people are sensitive to some ingredients of the food they love eating. Like in my case, I came to realize that I am allergic to egg, chicken and butter. And only after I found out about it and became cautious in checking contents of every food I eat that I was able to solve my concern. The allergens I mentioned are common. So, if you suffer from acne, it may be worth to do elimination diet. Start with any food you used to can't refuse. Eliminate it from your diet for at least 3 weeks. Carefully observe if there's any changes. It should help.

When I was around fifteen, I started to have acne on the face, but as time went on for about one or two years, acne was gone. I don't know whether it was related to food, but I know that it usually happens when one reaches adolescence. So there is no need to worry too much about it. It will be gone after a certain length of time. Take care.

Possible. But there are different cases. There are people I know who didn't do anything about it and compromised their facial skin. They started having those ugly, deep scars. I think it depends. If the pimples are manageable, then, one can prolly not do anything. But, if it's like filling your entire face, then, that's something to be alarmed about.
