Maintenance: Home remedies and lifestyle-related "pop wisdom" suggestions won't help. Supplements may promote general health but won't specifically target acne. Scientific treatment by a competent physician can keep all acne at bay. To keep flareups at bay, a low dose of an oral agent such as tetracycline 250 daily plus some mild topical rx may be sufficient.

Many options: Unfortunately it's too much nformation to include in this short a space as there are many nonprescription and prescription options. In general, avoid washing your face too much, 2X/day is more than enough. Avoid harsh soap, try something along the lines of Cetaphil, look for noncomedogenic products if you use them on your face. Live healthy: minimize stress, eat healthy, sleep well and be active
