    I've noticed this past month that I have clogged pores and due to this I've just had a breakout, I'm someone who's never had skin problems before throughout high school I always had clear skin. While going through puberty I rarely got pimples so this is a big shock am 19 now, and start of 2017 I had a breakout of 3/4 pimples at once. I've noticed that my face is oily in certain areas around my forehead and cheeks when I wake up which is also new as the past few years my face tended to be dry. Since then I've been using clearasil cleanser twice a day and a neutrogena face mask once a week.

    Ive been told that having clogged pores lead to pimples, so is this different to acne? can I prevent it leading to this?, if I already have acne it's most likely mild because from what I've read on acne.org mild acne is classed as having less than a 15 pimples on face. I don't have that many on my face in total since this has all started I've had about 10 including the ones have gone, which have left red marks on my face.

    So what I want to know is does anyone else get pimples from clogged pores? does this nessasarily mean I have acne? (Nobody in my family has or had it)

    Ps: sorry if everything I wrote is fragmented I'm having a panic attack and I'm currently on the bus after a terrible day lol.

    You mean clogged pores, giving you spots. You don't get breakouts, you break out in spots.

    Also, if you're getting spots, either try washing your face. In the case of acne. there's nothing you can really do except wait it out.

    You keep using that word: I do not think it means what you think it means.

    Cover your body in Epaderm 3/4 times daily. Pretty sure that'll work. The ointment should catch whatever particles would have clogged your pores.

    Note: get the emollient not the moisturiser. In a big 1kg tub too.
