I have the same problem. Except my parents need had acne. Idk why I get it. It could be genetics in your case. Try to use lotion and drink a big cup of water before Bed every night. It will keep your skin hydrated and clean

  1. You are a teen, so trust me they are not ALL going to disappearr. There is one thing that really helps clear it up. Rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball or cotton square. Rub it all over your face twice a day (morning and night before showering) and it should really make a difference. But still, you are a teen. with the hormones, the stress, and all that craziness, you are gonna have a little blemish. WE ALL DO! :)
    Hope I helped!

    Here are instructions for the rubbing alcohol…

    1. Put a little bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball or cotton square.

    2. Rub it all over your face, neck, and back.

    3. Do this twice a day before showering.

    EXTRA: You can find rubbing alcohol and cotton balls or cotton squares at any pharmacy such as Walgreen’s or CVS.

  2. I used to breakout in acne due to oily skin and have eczema myself. Genetic, Stress and Bacteria can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne. Here are some home remedies that can help but do not mix them together. You want to make sure you exfoliate your face every other day. Before putting any application on face for acne rinse with cool water then pad dry.

    1) Tea Tree Oil- An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions.
    2) Lemon oil or juice – Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. You can leave overnight don’t expose yourself to sunlight. Will help with both acne, and scars as well.
    3) Mandarin oil
    4) Cedar wood – good for eczema, psoriasis
    5) Lavender
    6) Apple cider vinegar
    7) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema
    8) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars
    9) Mederma good for stretch marks and scars
    10) Nadinola fades dark spots for a more even skin tone
    11) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash. Leave on to long will leave a scar.
    12) Zinc really works on acne
    13) 2% Erythromycin
    14) Benzoin Peroxide
    15) Hydrogen Peroxide 3% – It can help to dry out acne by killing bacteria on the skin. Soak a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and apply it either to the acne breakouts on your face. You also may opt to apply hydrogen peroxide to your entire face to help prevent future breakouts. Allow the hydrogen peroxide to do its job — wait until the bubbling stops in approximately a minute or two. Rinse your face with water. Apply an oil-free moisturizer to prevent skin from drying out.
    16) Vitamin B3- also known as niacin. It promotes healthy skin, can be utilized as an acne treatment.
    17) Retinoid- increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making it a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.
    18) Sulfur- dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell think rotten eggs.
    19) Coconut oil good for acne and scars.
    21) Turmeric powder is also good for acne.
    22) Neutrogena products
    23) Brown Listerine also sucks the life of your acne wash after about 15 minutes.
    24) Witch Hazel & Rubbing Alcohol both are good for acne
    25) Aloe Vera either from the plant itself or gel apply on the infected area.
    26) Neem oil-good for acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers (taken either orally in capsule or externally in oil)

    This is something I use every day and I got rid of my cystic acne and my eczema. I really recommend this. Neem oil: It is powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties, beneficial to those who suffer from various skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers, helps one treat hair related problems like dandruff and itchy scalp. Dental care products like toothpaste, mouth washes and rinses all use the neem oil’s antiseptic properties to keep teeth health and gums free of infection. Other benefits also include its use in household items like mosquito repellents, disinfectants and personal hygiene products. If you like you can purchase at http://www.amazon.com/ref=ap_frn_logo or in health food stores. It is the same price as some of the acne medications, either prescribe or over-the-counter.
