 Bye, Bye Breakouts: 10 Steps to Clear Skin
  When it comes to acne, no one gets a free pass. Whether you’re a tween, teen, adult, or
  even a movie star like Cameron Diaz or Brad Pitt, chances are you’re going to have to
  battle breakouts at some point. [And, if you have our luck, usually before a hot date!]
  The culprit? Oily skin. During adolescence especially, raging hormones put the glands                                    Beautiful clear skin at any age
  that moisturize your skin into overdrive, trapping oil, dirt and bacteria—a perfect storm
  for acne. While most people weather the brunt before age 20, it’s not uncommon to
  bear those blemishes well beyond your teen years. But don’t despair! The road to clear
