What activities or remedies can help keep pores unclogged to avoid acne? Are noncomedogenic makeups, lotions, or oils effective?

What activities or remedies can help keep pores unclogged to avoid acne?  Are noncomedogenic makeups, lotions, or oils effective?

Myth: The idea that acne is caused by "clogged pores" is simplistic. I trust you are otherwise healthy; if you're a woman in your 30s and are asking about acne, ask yourself about other evidence of hormonal disturbance. Forget "pop" acne remedies. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for something that can & manage till it self-cures. Best wishes ...Read more

Does direct sunlight make acne worse or better?

Better, but marginal: Simply exposing oneself to light should make acne better, however, due to the long time necessary to see a result makes this a poor method, especially with the risks of increased sun exposure (skin cancers, premature aging etc.) topical medications, oral medications, as well as special light therapy done by a dermatologist are all proven to work for acne with much better safety profiles. ...Read more

Are there any over-the-counter drugs or vitamins/supplements you recommend to prevent altitude sickness (i'm an avid skier)?  And yes i know all about drinking water and avoiding alcohol.

However, altitude sickness is caused by increased respiration resulting in alteration in acid/base balance. Diamoxx (which is prescription) counters this in the kidney. Once can try drinking sodium bicarbonate (in water). Also reports suggest n-acetyl-cysteine may work. ...Read more
