I am currently going through an acne breakout. A bad one. I honestly am not used to getting acne but I had a smaller breakout earlier this month, I don't know if that has anything to do with this one. I honestly haven't really changed any of my products and I wear my hair back almost everyday. The only thing I've been doing differently since this breakout began is I've started excersizing more and yes I eat alright but I've started being super aware of what I'm eating.
My question is what's the cause of this breakout so I can prevent it in the future and how do I treak this breakout quickly and effectivly?

I also get those breakouts. Its totally normal, you're 14! The main reason is really hormones. What happens is glands in your skin become overactive then they form into an oily substance to try to prevent your skin from being dry, and they seep into your pores and blocks the follicle! (I'm not that smart about the scientific facts, I googled that bahaha :P )
Anyways! For the part I actually know about- i'll list you some of my best working diy masks.
#1: 2 spoonfuls of turmeric powder, 1 spoonful of brown rice flower or chickpea flower, 2 spoonfuls of yogurt, half a spoonful of honey!
#2: 2 tbsp of honey, 1 tsp of olive oil, 2 tbsp of coffee grinds, 1 tbsp of organic plain yogurt.
I'm too lazy to explain these ones but here are 3 other ones:
Also! Neutragina naturals exfoliating scrub (once a week) is good! So is a daily clarisonic (better at night) but they cost $100, yikes!!! so better stick to cheaper things haha
So you should wash your face EVERY night with soap and water and do 2 facials and 1 exfoliating mask every week and every night use a non-oil moisturizer, or even 1 facial 1 exfoliator every week. Good luck! :-)0
