Your health is not a game or testing grounds. To treat something that is bothering you, not only in health matters, you need to find out the cause.

Acne is caused by many factors from different aspects of your life and surroundings, but which one is driving your acne out of control? let's find out.

What is your diet like?

How often are you out in the sun?

Are you someone who touches their face a lot?

How much water do you drink a day?

How old are you?

Do you drink sugary drinks?

Do you have other skin conditions besides acne?

Hormones unfortunately are not always easy to control. Hormonal acne often appears in the T-zone of the face. If you are a teen, then your acne may be from an influx of hormones that just aren't your fault. One of the best ways to ward off this kind of acne is through non comedogenic products that contain salicylic acid.
