So I suffer from acne, it use to terrible, but it hasn't worsened too much, but this week I have been breaking out. I remember I did eat two tiny chocolate pieces then all Hell broke loose. Any tips? During my middle school years, I didn't suffer from acne. I just had a few pimples here and there, but it worsened in high school.

I get pretty embarrassed about my acne even though there are a lot of kids at my school that suffer from acne problems. I just don't want scarring on my face even if there are laser surgeries to prevent scarring. I did an allergy test, but there was no serious allergies or minor ones. My parents have tried everything even diets, a diet called the McDougall diet where you eat no fats, no oils, nor dairy, no sugar helped my face quite a lot. I recommend that!

Hi Celliur!
I hear you about the acne problem - I don't personally suffer too badly from it however I have a friend who suffered really badly so you're not alone. A helpful tip she learnt over time was to regularly change her bed sheets - it sounds crazy I know right? But all the oils and dirt from your face collect on your bedsheets as you sleep so she got into the habit of changing her sheets (if not all, just the pillow cases) once every week, and every other night she would flip the pillow over to lie on the opposite side to regulate the amount of bacteria she was allowing to touch her face (sorry if that sounds a bit gross). I know it's not ground-breaking and the results were minimal, but it's a tip anyone can use and I thought would be helpful to share as it costs nothing and doesn't take much effort to do.
Hope this helped :)

I usually try to wash my sheets and pillow every day and wash my hair too (Which is a pain)! But thanks! c:

    • This may sound so simple, you may think that there's no way it would work. Drink more water. People are supposed to drink 8-11 cups of water per day, but almost nobody does. Drinking water has a ton of positive health effects, though. Some studies show that drinking water can give you more energy, make you happier, give you better sleep, and it has a lot of other health benefits. One of which is less acne.

      Your body eliminates waste in your pee, which is made up mostly of water. By drinking more water, your body can de-toxify and get rid of all the bad chemicals and toxins you eat/drink/produce. This will help acne problems.

      There are lots of people who did scientific studies on the effects of drinking water, and there are lots of people who do the water gallon challenge (drink 1 gallon of water a day for one month). Go research it, it's actually really interesting.

      Change your pillow case every few nights is a good idea. I would also recommend washing your face before bed (to get less oils on my pillow) and first thing in the morning (to wash off any oils from overnight).
