Question
Hello, my name is Justin. i am a 17 year old senior in high school and my biggest dream is to be an actor. i was wondering if you could recommend any products that can get rid of and/or prevent any acne or pimple build-ups. blackheads are also a problem for me. not a very big problem but enough t bother me when i look in the mirror. i want to have the clearest skin possible. PLEASE HELP!!!

Answer
Hi Justin,

There is a website that I really like that is all about healing and curing acne. She has some amazing tips on there. She also sells some acne fighting products as well. I haven't tried them except for the masks which I real like. Some tips that I have is to drink lots of water. Also taking vitamin c or eating foods high in vitamin c will help. Try to avoid foods like dairy, caffeine and sugar. Remember I am not a doctor so consult with a doctor before making any serious diet changes. Keep your skin moisturized regardless if it's dry or oily. Keeping your skin moisturized will prevent your skin from overproducing oils that can lead to acne. Do not ever pop or pick acne because this can lead to more breakouts. As far as products to help treat acne make sure whatever product you use is non-comedogenic (will not clog pores) and hypoallergenic. I usually recommend the Velocity line for my clients struggling with breakouts. This product also exfoliates as well which will help clear the black heads. The masks as well on the acne website I mentioned will help with the blackheads as well. Hope this helps I provided links below to what I mentioned. Best of luck with your acting career!
