Hey, I've had acne for a few years now, it's definitley better now than it was but university starts soon and I'd like it to all be gone by then.
Does anyone have any tips like cutting certain things out of your diet, certain products or methods etc?
Any help is appreciated

Here is my advice when it comes to acne...
1.) Wash your face often. Like every time you go to the bathroom or wake up / go to sleep, just splash some water on your face. Water is the most basic treatment of acne but it is incredibly helpful.
2.) Fried food / heavy grease often promotoes acne. However, if you eat pizza of something greasy, make sure you wash your hands after and wash your face where any grease got on it. You don't want to have any spots on your face start breaking out.
3.) Don't touch your face! This is what I've noticed has caused the most acne breakouts. If you, let's say, try to pop a zit because it is bothering you, legions of zits shall rise up for its fallen brother all around where you squeezed. It is the oils in your hands that do it. Just let things run its natural course. But, if you just gotta pop some huge white-head on a zit, for Pete's sake pop it with clean hands and pop it once and be done. Don't keep coming back to it, or else you'll squeeze the blood vessels and now have a huge noticeable red mark on your face.
4.) Proactive. If you are sincerely worried about your acne breakout and are willing to spend cash, I sincerely suggest proactive. My sister used it, and it cleared up her acne very nicely. The downside of it is that there is a strict regiment you need to get used to. If you do it though, you'll be amazed how well it works. If you don't have the money for Proactiv though, like I said, just get in the havit of washing your face.
Well hope this helped a bit! If you need more help or if you have additional questions or concerns, feel free to comment or PM or whatever and I can get back to you asap!
