Acne facts and tips
 
Acne affects 85% of all adolescents.  Here is some information and tips for caring for your skin.  Acne is caused by the bacteria P acnes and can range from mild to quite severe.  Acne is NOT caused by chocolate or greasy food in most people, dirty skin, or stress; although stress can make acne worse for some people.  What triggers acne?  A predisposition to acne may be inherited.  Acne can be triggered or worsened by hormonal changes, some medications, and oil from skin, hair, and skincare products. 
 
Tips for caring for your skin:  Wash face gently twice daily and after hard exercise with a mild cleanser.  Avoid strong soaps and rough scrubbing.  Avoid astringents or use them only to spot treat very oily areas.  Don’t squeeze or pick at blemishes.  Protect your face from sun exposure.  Shampoo your hair daily if it is oily.  Look for cleansers, moisturizers, make-up and sunscreen products that are water-based and “noncomedogenic” not just oil-free. 
 
Benzoyl peroxide containing products are available over the counter for more persistent acne.  Your healthcare provider may offer additional treatment options if acne is moderate to severe.
