Oily skin, clogged pores and hormonal imbalance are the primary factors that cause pimples. She should always use water-based products instead of oil-based ones since they are less likely to cause pimples. Avoid rigorous scrubbing, stress, and never pick or squeeze the pimples. The best creams for pimples are those that contain Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide or Sulfur. If over-the-counter products do not work, visit a dermatologist. Consult a dermatologist and he/she will guide you on the best treatment for your condition.
