 6 Steps to Avoid Acne Breakouts
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States, affecting millions nationwide. Anyone can get acne, but it is most common with teenagers and young adults.

The condition is often marked by pimples and can be triggered from various causes, including hormones (puberty, pregnancy, etc.), stress and unhealthy eating.

However, acne is not totally out of your control.

Pimples form when the follicles under your skin get clogged, so by preventing that from happening in the first place, you can be proactive in keeping acne at bay.

Acne specialist, Crystal Wellman, joins Dr. Friedman to share some simple steps you can take to avoid those awful breakouts, no matter your age.
