Can excessively oily skin be the cause of my recent acne breakouts?

Not the issue: The key is that you remember that acne is a non-lifestyle-related, non-hygiene-related disease, only marginally and unpredictably related to diet, and that you'll do much better staying on top of managing it than asking 'why' -- usually the latter question never gets answered. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. ...Read more

Manage your acne: You're almost an adult. If topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid haven't cleared you in two weeks, your physician will need to add prescription-strength Rx.

Dark spots can be bleached but I'd advise you not to try; depressed scars need specialist intervention. ...Read more
