While 90 percent of teenagers develop acne at some point, a breakout can lower self confidence. Here are some acne treatment tips to help avoid breakouts so skin can look its best:



* Reduce stress. Even though going back to school is stressful, it’s important to relax. Remember, acne starts inside hair follicles, where glands produce the protective oil that keeps skin soft and supple. Stress affects the hormones that control these glands. Teens might consider doing calming activities, such as taking a bath, doing yoga or walking the dog.



* Remove makeup before physical activity. For females, combining sweat and makeup can be the ultimate pore clogger. Rmove makeup prior to activities with a quick face wash or cleansing wipes that can easily be stowed in a backpack.



* Eat the right foods. While indulging in chocolate or french fries from time to time does not cause pimples, eating an unbalanced diet may trigger acne flare-ups. Keep in mind there is some evidence that teenagers who eat more vegetables have fewer breakouts. In general, choose fresh, unprocessed foods from all four food groups and drink eight glasses of water a day.
