Acne is a skin condition that causes pimples to form on the face, neck, back, and shoulders. These areas are naturally more oily than other parts of the body, so they are a natural target for acne. Acne is most common in teenagers because hormonal changes at puberty cause the body to produce more oil or sebum. This sebum combines with skin cells to clog pores, trapping bacteria and causing pimples to form. It tends to be more severe in boys than girls because testosterone causes more sebum production than estrogen does. Most teenagers grow out of acne in time. The key is to care for the skin properly until hormones balance and the skin stops breaking out.

Acne occurs in adults, too. Whether it’s teen or adult, skin with acne is sensitive and needs special care. Choosing the correct body wash for your skin is important. Here are some top picks for the best body washes for acne-prone skin:

Some Final Words on Acne

Acne is not caused by chocolate or french fries or any other kind of food. That is a myth, probably started because teens with acne just happen to like those foods. It’s possible for a person to be allergic to a certain food and react with a skin rash, but not acne. The most important things you can do to keep your skin clear of acne are to keep it clean and keep your hands and fingers OFF your face and neck areas. Without realizing it, you touch your face many times a day, and your fingers contain millions of bacteria. Since bacteria are closely involved with acne, it’s obvious that you don’t want even more bacteria on your face. Train yourself to keep your fingers away from your face. If you must touch your face for some reason, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and hot water. Otherwise, only touch your face at washing time, with hands that have been thoroughly cleansed.

Adult acne is troubling and puzzling. It usually has a hormonal cause. Acne can appear in women due to an imbalance of the hormone testosterone, which is normally present in women but only in small amounts. If this small amount gets too high, then acne can result, because testosterone causes the skin to produce more sebum, or oil, which is a major player in the development of acne.

NEVER pick at your acne! Never try to squeeze the pimples. You will only cause irritation, even more redness, likely make the pimple bigger, and worse, permanent scars could result. Instead, treat your skin gently and use a cleansing product that works for you. Always use your clean hands and fingers to cleanse your face; never a wash cloth. The cloth will irritate your acne. Use only a special moisturizer that is labeled non-comedogenic. This term means that it will not block pores. If you wear foundation, choose only oil-free brands. Apply makeup and foundation with clean, freshly washed fingers. You can use a makeup sponge, but only if you use disposable ones. Use a fresh sponge every time. Reused makeup sponges collect and breed bacteria. Keep your skin as clean as possible.

To control your acne and keep your skin as clear as possible, follow the above tips and use the guide here to help you choose the best product for your sensitive, acne-prone skin. Read and follow label directions carefully for best results.

American actress and musician who starred as a lead role on the TV show The Practice and the ABC sitcom, Full House gave birth to a healthy and beautiful baby girl February 8th, 2012.

Marla Sokoloff,31, and husband Alec Puro now have a full house of their own! Baby Elliotte Anne Puro was born at 8:05 p.m. in California.

Sokoloffs rep confirmed to PEOPLE that their new addition weighed in at 7 lbs.

This is the first child for the couple who began dating back in 2004. On November 7th, 2009, Sokoloff and Puro tied the knot which was just he start of the couple’s long and happy life together. The good news of their baby girl was announced on Sokoloffs blog on September 19th, 2011. Just a day after giving birth, Sokoloff told PEOPLE, “Mom, dad and baby are happy as can be and completely in love with each other.”

In regards to the nine weeks of pregnancy, Sokoloff said, “There were weeks that seemed endless and yes, I’m currently complaining about my feet swelling up like balloons and the general discomfort that comes with the end of pregnancy — but all in all the journey has been one that I will never forget.”

J.R. Martinez and Diana Gonzalez-Jones confirmed that they will be expecting a baby girl! Though they did disclose the two names that they are considering for their newest addition, the couple did make a few sarcastic remarks that have many fans relieved.

At the Screen Actors Guild Awards the couple stated, “We won’t name her Apple Cider or Salami. It won’t be our favorite dish or our favorite getaway or favorite car or show.”

Does Martinez mean to tell us that he will be taking a traditional approach to naming his soon-to-be, unlike Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s most recent addition, Blue Ivy?

The 28-year-old Dancing with the Stars winner told PEOPLE, “We have narrowed it down to two names and we agree on it, which is good. I hear that traditionally, when it comes to the name picking, that’s when the disagreements occur. But I think it will be a nice flow.”

Gonzalez, who is closing in on her third trimester says that she is beginning to show and her little baby girl is beginning to show that she’s there, too! “Now, she’s kicking all the time. She’s like, ‘I’m here, I’m coming,” said Gonzalez.

Congratulations to J.R, Diana, and their precious baby girl!

Doesn’t it seem like just a day or two ago Victoria’s Secret top model Alessandra Ambrosio announced that she would be expecting baby number 2? Well, sources are saying that another top model is also traveling down the road to motherhood. Lily Aldridge, 26, and husband Caleb Followill, 29, announced yesterday, December 29th, that they were expecting their first child.

The Kings of Leon frontman and the stunning Victoria’s Secret angel tied the knot last May in Santa Barbara. According to PEOPLE, the couple cannot wait to meet the new addition to their family. In August, the singer leaked information of beginning a family when the singer told PEOPLE, “I can’t wait to raise a family with her because she’s a great woman.”

The best of luck goes out to the couple. Have a happy and safe New Year!
