Stop pimples: That is a rather broad question. Generally, a diet low in carbs and dairy will help breakouts. Keeping the skin clean but not irritated will also help. Don't go in for all these abrasive brush devices, unless you have iron skin.

No one is immune: While teenagers are more prone to getting "pimples" or acne due to hormonal changes affecting the environment of the skin, it is still possible and common for older people to get this - if keeping the skin clean and over the counter remedies (and time) don't resolve the problem then a primary care doctor or dermatologist can offer other remedies that may help ie. Antibiotics etc.
