The truth about Acne

written by Vidya Sury August 25, 2010

Did you know that acne does not come from eating pizza or french fries? Okay, so it does help to cut down on oily and fried foods to keep your skin healthy. But contrary to popular belief, foods don’t have much effect on acne.

Those embarrassing little blemishes actually occur when your hair follicles become plugged with oil, dead skin cells and sometimes bacteria.

To zap zits, wash problem areas with a gentle cleanser and apply an over-the-counter lotion that contains benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Never pick or squeeze blemishes. This can cause infection or scarring.
