Acne is a skin condition that effects almost 80% of teenagers, both male and female. It tends to start at the onset of puberty and can last until the early twenties.

Although no one is sure of the exact cause it is thought that the body's production of increased amounts of the hormone testosterone at the start of puberty is a factor. As boys produce more testosterone than girls this probably accounts for boys being more likely to suffer acne than girls.

Other factors which contribute to acne include oily skin, heredity, stress, oral contraceptives, allergies and poor diet. Some women develop acne before the start of their menstrual period, this is sometimes called premenstrual acne.
How to Avoid or Reduce Acne

Keep affected areas as clean and free from oil as possible
Shampoo hair often
Eat a whole food diet with plenty of fruits and vegetable - raw if possible
Cut down on dairy, meat, fried food, and sugar
Eat more cold water fish like salmon
What You Can Do to Treat Acne Pimples
Apply Tea Tree Oil to pimples about three or four times daily. In a study tea tree oil proved to be an effective alternative to benzyl peroxide.
Use tea tree oil only at the recommended dilution and avoid contact with the eyes. Never take tea tree oil internally as it is poisonous
Do not pick or scratch pimples - this can cause scaring. Keep hands clean and touch your face as little as possible.
