I’m sure that I’m not alone when I say one of the most annoying things you can wake up to is a shiny new pimple or blemish. As an adult, my acne has decreased, and it’s also easier to tell when I’m going to break out — typically the week before my period. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t find myself wishing I could do away with it entirely.

As an adult, my acne is mostly caused by my hormonal cycle, but acne can also be caused by stressed, diet, medications and even cleaning your face too much, which encourages too much oil production. These are things I know after years of trying different products to treat and hide acne as well as to prevent it in the future.

My story involves a lot of trial and error, but yours doesn’t have to, thanks to resources like It’s a great site where you’ll find:

  • Articles about acne — over 400 total!
  • Reviews of common products like Exposed Skincare (my own review will be up soon!) — read a thorough review of┬áProactiv
  • Quizzes to determine skin type
  • Tips for reducing scars
  • Advice about working with skin doctors
  • Information about body acne

One of the things I really like about this site is that it’s based on science and not old wive’s tales. We’ve all heard advice about what to do or not to do (how about toothpaste for pimples?). Facing Acne skips the get-clear-quick schemes and uses actual science to help improve skin condition.

You can download a free eBook on the site (sidebar) that will help you deal with acne in the most efficient way. Keep it on your PC, send it to your phone or tablet, and you’ll always have the information you need!

Even though I’ve spent plenty of time doing my own research, I still found to be quite useful. For example, I didn’t know that some people user laser treatment to help deal with their acne — and the blog even talks about how some doctors might be overdoing it with the lasers. Youch!

I also learned how ice cream can contribute to break outs (and how coconut water, among other foods, can help to battle it) and that other treatments include blue-light therapy, which seems good for my fair skin, and chemotherapy, which can help specific types of acne.

I could ramble on about the helpful information on this site, or you could visit yourself to see if you learn something new or find the perfect product for you to try to get rid of your acne.

Let me know what kind of research you’ve done, whether you’ve used any of the products reviewed on Facing Acne or something you’ve learned from the site in the comments!
