Soaps do not help: Acne is a disease of the oil-producing glands of the face, but removing the oils does not cure acne.

Hello! What should I eat to cure pimples,acne and skin problems Like those..? What should I include and what should be avoided in my daily diet 4 dat?

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. We need to know more about you and evaluate your type of acne. PCOS is likely to improve with weight reduction. You probably need spironolactone with or without a low androgen birth control pill. See a dermatologist. ...Read more

Since I dislike having acne, sometimes I have no choice but to cover my face with concealer. I know it's not good for my skin, but I have no choice. ?

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. I would talk with a dermatologist about what may be triggering your acne, and what medications, if any, may help to control your outbreaks. As far as concealer, check the product hat you are using. You should use one that doesn't clog your pores. ...Read more
