How to Stop Acne with Science

Breakouts are a pain and can happen well into your 40s.

While there’s no cure to make acne instantly go away, there are a few science-backed tips you can use to help minimize the number of pimples that pop up.

This week, Reactions goes into the chemistry behind acne: what causes it, how to prevent it and what you can do to treat it.

Reactions is a series from the American Chemical Society that uncovers the chemistry in everyday life.

The American Chemical Society is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress.

With more than 158,000 members, ACS is the world’s largest scientific society and a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
