What are some practical tips to prevent acne. My son has problems with it and it seems that they are popping up on his face all the time! Do you have any tips to prevent this? Also do foods really cause acne?

You have probably heard all the obvious things ,, be extra clean with the skin , eat plenty of fruit and fresh vegetables ... I think drinking more water can help and also taking a couple of sulpher tablets each day .. If it gets really bad the doctor can prescribe medication ..

I have struggled with Acne for last 10 years and have finally got it under control. Unfortunatly everyone is different and so acne is caused by different things for different people. If he is a teenager it is probably hormonal and worth seeing the doctor to get some antibiotics but thats when it started for me and then i noticed my diet affected my acne aswell so i dont eat sugary foods now as they are sure to break me out. Lots of water and fresh fruit and veg are the order of the day and dont put loads of different creams on it as you will make it worse.

based on my own experiences, i don't sleep without washing my face. i don't apply anything on my face after as long as i washed it. when oily, i tried not to touch my face often because it'll give me pimple for sure. dirt would stick to it if i keep on rubbing my oily nose. i don't use others' pressed powder, their sponge might cause me a pimple. i have a sensitive face since before. i also don't used commercial face creams or whatever even if it's too popular because i tried before and it only worsen my face..

When I was young it was coca cola. One glass and two days later I was covered! Take care.
