You do not get acne from chocolate or strong spices. Or, yes, you will get acne from chocolate, but not because you eat it. You get pimples because you touch yourself in the face when you eat chocolate. When you poke around in your face with dirty fingers - you might have a habit of leaning your head against your hand or stroke your chin when you think - you are massaging bacteria and dirt into sensitive pores which will then turn into pimples. You could also suffer from acne as a symptom of (usually) intestinal problems. If you get pimples in symmetrical patterns in your face, especially along the jawlines, it can be either a symptom of IBS - Irritated Bowel Syndrome - colon irritabile, that you stress to much and thus upset your stomach, or that you eat things that aren't good for you - or all of those alternatives. The article on heartburn might help you put a stop to such acne.
Follow these advises in order to get rid of pimples:
Stop touching your face. See to that areas where you have acne aren't covered or irritated by shirt-collars or caps - especially not dirty such.
Do not dry out the skin. Do not wash your skin with dehydrating anti-acne solutions. Such solutions cause the skin to produce more fat which in turns increases the risk of blocking the skin's pores.
Wash your face with pure water only - do not use soap or alcohol based solutions. Do not rinse your face with cold water after shaving in order to "close the pores" - rinse with skin warm water and let the pores breathe instead.
Do not shave yourself the wrong way. Shave in the same direction as the hairs grow. If you shave in the opposite direction you will cut off small pieces of the skin which is lifted up with the hairs. The sore skin will then probably get infected - it's far better with bristles than red pus-filled spots.
Carefully squeeze pus-filled pimples. It's more likely that you will get worse scars from suppurations that are left to heal for themselves than from cleaned out "craters". Do use lots of disinfectants though and powder the wound with non-scented baby powder or similar in order to keep it dry and clean.
Use a skin lotion which contains carbamide in order to keep your skin moisturized after you washed yourself. Carbamide tunes your skin's moisture balance in a natural way. Eventually you could mix in some weak cortisone-gel if your skin is irritated.
Sunbathe. Adequate exposure to the sun helps the body to create vitamin D which is good for the immune system.
Exercise and take a sauna. The skin needs to sweat - don't be afraid of that - in order to get clean in depth.
Follow the advices above and you will most likely have much less trouble with acne and pimples. It's never necessary to spend large sums on miracle promising anti-acne cures - none of them work other than that they temporarily dehydrate the skin which will eventually worsen your problems. And remember - the pimple is always worst in the mirror you are looking in.

Pimples are wonderful! I have pimples! they're cool! I have them on my face, back, butt, stomach, hair, feet, nose, hands, teeth, brain, tongue, fingers, heart, legs, toes, boogers, poop, pee, homework. Even my friends have acne! Everything I touch has pimples. Like my house, car, floor, people, air, oxygen everywhere. Yes, the oxygen has pimples! So what? I don't care if you hate them. You guys are gay. Pimples are cool and get you a million girls. (The girls have pimples) ((EVERYWHERE))!!! Anyway, pimples are awesome and make you cool. boys and girls without pimples are just stupid, fat, lazy, gay, lazy, fat, and lazy. They're all poopheads. Seriously though, you all are gay. Why are you trying to get rid of them? I love theM! Give your pimples to me! I'll get more girls. with pimples. You guys will just get more boys with pimples (girls for girls with pimples). I'm here with my 70 girlfriends and they're all making out with all my pimples that are really big! eat them AAAALLLL!

Me and my sisters clean our skins with cold water after using a pimple solution. It cured our pimples up in a week. My sister had it way worse than me with tons of pimples all over her face. So I think its wrong not to use pimple solutions. Only most of them. Cold water after and let it breathe don't dry it. It still lets it breathe while closing it up cleanly.

if you REALLY wanna get rid of pimples buy ancefree. it's the proactive wannabe and it works like crazy. secondly, use an exfoliator once a week (if your skin is normal) twice if it is oilier than most. also, apply your acne meds right before you go to bed. it helps cause your body does most of it's healing at night while you are sleeping.
Bacne- if you have it on your back buy a brush so you clean back there better and it will help. do you exercise alot? your 'backne' problems could be because of the materials you wear when you go running or head out to soccer practice. use man made materials (like mesh, etc) that are created by sports brands (nike, puma, other trustable sources) they are designed to pull sweat away from your body thus keeping your pores clear.
Is your skin really dry? try putting on a moisturizer right after you hop out of the shower.

Hry my dad used dawn dishwashing soap to cure his acne and it really worked so my brother did it and it worked. so if this method doesnt work try mine really its working for me!
Posted by: Brian
can whoever owns this site answer my question, so i know wat you think, i mean whoever wrote about the remedies
Posted by: Max Magnus
Dishwashing soap might work for some but I wouldn't recommend it generally since there's a big risk that it dries out the skin too much making the body trying to compensate this by making the pores produce even more fat.
Posted by: Brian
Thanx for the answer
Posted by: Chris-Acne hater
Oh i also was wondering if steam would help open up the pores and relax so maybe you can use that?
Posted by: Max Magnus
Sure, steam is good, saunas are good.
