How to prevent acne? I get breakouts when I'm in the sun. And I can't use benzoyl peroxide as it irritates my skin. Please help

Ideas: If you cannot tolerate benzoyl peroxide, your physician will probably offer you topical clindamycin. This is likely to give you a good result. If you can use the oral contraceptive pill, it may clear you. Your physician has other remedies as well. Talk with him/her also about a good sunscreen.

Is it good to use vitamin E oil (1 time on face) for mild acne-prone skin? Does it clog pores and can breakout more? (m using it 4 light redness)

Yes, BUT: It will not be of any benefit unless you wish to oil your face. The masturbation is not relevant. If you wish for less acne a dermatologist will help you. Meanwhile you can try using tiny amounts of benzoyl peroxide gel. Look for the lowest %. 5% or lower.

Why does stress cause my skin to breakout?

Stress and Acne: Stress can also produce more hormones by stimulating the adrenal glands. In fact, hormonal problems are usually the culprit when it comes to people who have severe cystic acne. The adrenal glands produce cortisol, which can cause the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum. As a result, the skin can become oily. The oil can mix with dead skin cells and bad bacteria can be trapped causing acne.
