Dairy will make some people's face break out. Yes your diet can contribute to acne! Who wrote this article????

@Allyfedor - the are myths.. She actually said what to do instead of that in the description below the picture. Smh😂

Hey guys apple cider vinegar is great for acne but only put it where you are breaking out or else u will smell gross lol

"Sun cancer".... Lol, what??

@Thelma62913 It's different for everyone. Sometimes it's hormonal and diet can't change anything. Personally, once I started eating better, my face started clearing up a lot (at least the acne caused by my diet). Unfortunately, I also had a lot of hormonal acne that didn't go away until I started birth control (which doesn't always work for everyone)

That's why you should.... what?! You didn't finish the sentence!
