Acne: Anything that causes the skin pores to get plugged up can contribute to acne. Be sure any facial cream or product used is labeled as noncomedogenic. That means that it will not contribute to acne. Some people may still be sensitive to those products and get a reaction. See the doctor for advice if still having the breakouts.
