When you are in your teenage years, it seems that acne is a persistent curse that everyone you know battles. It is such an unrelenting plague that comparisons to the Black Death might apply.

Many adults in all ages ranges have occasional outbreaks of the disease.
Unlike a lot of diseases, acne is not a problem that everybody has to go to the doctor to get treatment. Dermatologists would probably like it if we all lined up at their door with every flurry of acne we get. And in some cases when the problem become chronic or with varieties of acne that are genuinely dangerous, medical help is definitely called for. But for most of us, a little common sense and some good home remedies that have worked for millions of people can work for you too.
There is an old saying that goes “the best revenge is living well”. That saying also applies to the best acne treatment. And as any mom will tell you, the best treatment for acne is prevention. It really is just a matter of some very simple diet and hygiene lifestyle choices that you can do that will eliminate 90% of the acne problems that most of us go through. Some of those choices include… . Eliminate fatty snacks from your diet including soft drinks and chips.. Drink lots of water. Water keeps the skin rinsed out and clean from the inside.. Reduce the amount of fried foods you eat. Instead, eat more fresh and raw vegetables. The nutrients you get from that diet will give your skin a lot to work with.. Wash your face with a simple detergent soap at least twice a day but especially before bed. Don’t use soaps with a lot of perfumes in them. Use a washcloth and give your skin a good scrubbing. This will damage the existing acne pimples and clean them out and remove excess oils that could become acne overnight.. Girls take off the make off early in the evening and wash your face well. Give your skin plenty of time to breathe.. Follow other good health practices such as getting good sleep and eating well rounded meals. It helps your general health which directly benefits your skin.
