Acne: Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day & use oil free products. No oily hair or heavy foundations. Try not to pop pimples. Avoid touching face (cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after strenuous exercise. Consider OTC products (salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). If > mild acne see dermatology.

Acne & Diet: Many foods can aggravate acne. The most common culprits, in my observations, are nuts and peanut butter, dairy products (excess cheese and milk), sugars and high glycemic index foods (chocolate). So, no snickers bars; no reese's cups; no gallons of milk, cut down on cheese.

Acne Results: It will not be better by 5 o'clock in the afternoon! how severe is it? How long have you had it? Where is it located? Face? Chest? Back? Are you taking an antibiotic? Which topical preparations are you using? Lots of variables here. A dermatologist can certainly help . . .Give him or her a shot at it.

Cardio conditioning: There are many causes of cardiac inflammation--infections, drug/chemo, radiation effects, excess alcohol, rheumatologic diseases, uncontrolled diabetes etc..While exercise itself does not get rid of inflammation in the heart, it may improve heart function and general health. It can help lower cholesterol/sugar, blood pressure and thus better heart-health. Other diseases must be treated. Good luck.
