Go read the other acne post. I just put out a lot of good information. One key, DO NOT PICK! DO NOT POP! YOu will only make it worse. You are first of all to young to be on this site. This is for mothers. BUT I will tell you it is about hormones and diet. Do not have to much oil and fatty foods such as fries, chips, oil saturated pizza. This will not help. Actually I have the links from the other page already to post, so I will put them here, but still go read the information from the other post

Candy doesn't cause acne. Hormones do. I had horrible acne as a teenager (12-15) and had the same thing, lots of people point it out and make me feel bad. See if you can go to an estetician, she can guide you on the best cleanser for your skin type. Try not to pop them because it can make them worse and cause scarring. So many people go through this in puberty and it is hard. I tried every product available at the time without luck. It wasn't until years later when I was diagnosed with a hormonal condition did I realize it was because of that. Don't listen to all those people who say it is what you eat because all that does is put blame on you for something that it not in your control. And remember, though I know it is hard at your age, beauty is what is on the inside, not the outside. You sound like an intelligent, well spoken young lady and I wish you all the best.
