Not the key: Acne is only marginally related to diet and not at all to hygiene or lifestyle. You're wasting your time if you try to clear yourself with 'pop' experiments.

Wrong question: Your question is really about how to control acne. Diet is not the answer except that you are overweight and may have PCOS.

Acne: There are several factors that determine outbreaks of acne- hormones, diet, exercise, and products that we apply to our face just to name a few.

You should use one that doesn't clog your pores. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
