  • Go to a dermatologist. They'll figure out why you are getting them now and tell you how to treat them. For me it was that I am sensitive to orange juice. A month after I stopped drinking it, no more acne.

  • go to Walmart get some Epsom salt and witch hazel use either or, I use the witch hazel everyday at least 2times. If I don't my pimple come back! Try this before you buy any of that expensive stuff, the Epsom salt I get a bowel add water and the salt, put the lid on, shake it, let it dissolve and use a cotton ball and put it on my face. They both work really well. I have also found the epsom salt at the Dollar Tree

  • Until the hormones are done with you, it may persist. Try a derm or Murad or that one Jessica Simpson endorses. Otherwise, drink a TON of water. That's the simple solution.

  • I agree that hormones are most likely the cause.  The best things you can do for your skin are stay regular (drinking lots of water can help) and have a good skin care routine. 

    I have had pimples on and off a lot over the years. I am now using Arbonne products as they don't contain mineral oils. For me, that was what was clogging my pores and making my pores look worse and causing more break outs. I also like that the products don't dry my skin out as that used to cause me to overproduce oil.

  • if your bowels are congested, you will have acne. get a colonic and keep your bowels regular.

  • baking soda and water helps me make a paste out of it and put it on your face then rinse well.
    I removes the dead skin and helps to kill the bacteria.
