Being a teenager again would be fun in a lot of ways…and acne isn’t one of them.

That’s why, as we get older, no one one celebrates when they look in the mirror and out of nowhere there’s a pimple staring back at them!

The thing is, this isn’t some kind of return to your teenage years. The common skin condition, caused by the oil-producing glands in the skin, can flare up in two unhealthy situations: When we eat fatty foods, and when our lives become too stressful. In fact, choosing healthy foods and nixing stress are two of the key messages of Acne Awareness Month, which is being observed in September. And luckily for anyone who never wants to pop another pimple again, the website you’re looking at right now is JAMMED with easy tips for achieving both things! For instance:
