hi rpmolecule, i think you are a little confused.... you see Many people still believe that acne is caused by dirty skin. But The truth is, actually washing alone will not clear up or prevent acne. In retrospect,  Washing does, however, help remove excess surface oils and dead skin cells. Many people use all kinds of products, including alcohol-based cleansers, and scrub vigorously, only to irritate the skin further and worsen their acne. Washing the skin twice a day gently with water and a mild soap is usually all that is required. However, acne is actually caused by a variety of biologic factors that are beyond the control of washing. For that reason, you should use appropriate acne treatments for the acne

consider
- STRESS
- proper diet
- the products that you use (avoid everything that causes oiliness)

i agree with paul6151.... mostly talaga stress is causing acne...it's the irregularities and hormonal imbalances..

drink alot of fruit juices...and don't smoke it could trigger acne for some people... . ;) ;) ;) ;)

and do you know that stress-agent? it's the cortisol. if you can control this, then you can manage stress. :)

yes.. and there's almost no product that can control this. you have to check if the anti-stress tab actually prevents over secretion of cortisol... but i know one that's developed to address cortisol.

cortisol is an important hormone, but when secreted in higher levels, one of the effects is: acne breakouts.

acne is multifactorial that is there are many factors which can cause it
your entry into adolescence ngrereact ang body mo sa new hormones
over production of sebum which gets infected
take anti stress supplements
B complex vitamins have been blamed for acne
but do you know that Niacin a B complex vitamin is also used to treat acne?
even the mineral Zinc which is good for wound healing may also work
and lastly always take your probiotics they have so many wonders inside your body

i have a very oily skin...paghindi ako nagwash ng face even once a day...the following day puro pimples na ako....my theory before was this oily skin is blocking the pores so i need to wash my face several times a day to clear out the oil ...if this oily skin is hormonal then i need to suppress that hormone which is overly activating the oily skin ..is there kind of medicine for this? yun bang parang pang suppress lang sa oiliness?  or talagang wala? nagtataka lang ako kasi yung mga kapatid ko hindi naman sila  ganun kaoily ...ako lang naman so marami akong acne breakouts kesa sa kanila.. i wouldnt say genetic  plays a role here kasi bakit ako lang? palagay nyo?

sebum is the product of those secretion,when it's blocked it gets infected and you have acne
benzoyl peroxide and tretinoin can cause skin dryness
