In brief: Acne
Don't wash your face with body soap.
Also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. Try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena, pangea organics, or something with benzoyl peroxide. Following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt. You can try to prevent spreading bacteria onto your face by not touching your face, washing your phone, etc.

In brief: Treatment of acne
The primary problem is clogged pores that can be due to excessed oil production.
Insufficient exfoliation to keep the pores open and the bacterial composition of the skin. The treatments for acne address these issues. Benzoyl peroxide is antibacterial and reduces inflammation. Sal acid exfoliates the skin. If you don't respond to these products see your dermatologist.

In brief: It is not that easy
This one milloin dollar question:acne can be caused by just about anything.
Too much of the same foods, not enough of this or that in diet, environmental reasons and on and on. There are as many reasons as there are treatments and every ones will be different. Most think it is due to hormones.I think the best thing to do, find dermatologist you trust and follow his recomendations. Thank you, good.
