Wendy --- Wendy, Most important when trying to get rid of acne is to understand what works for a friend may not be the solution for you. Acne is a result of hormonal changes during puberty and right before your period. During this time there is an increase your skin's output of oil. Acne is also minimally related to the foods that you eat. (New findings show that foods containing white flour, potatoes and sugar raise the blood's insulin levels and testosterone levels also rise, promoting acne. Foods such as fruits and veggies will help keep insulin low and skin clear.) Treatment should include gently washing your face gently with antibacterial soap several times each day. Noxema and other deep cleansing creams can be helpful too. Don't rub hard. Rubbing to hard and squeezing or popping a pimple can spread bacterial and inflammation, making your acne worse.
