Q. What am I going to do about my pimples?
A. Ask your parents what they recommend. If you are just getting them, it’s important not to squeeze them. Don’t wash your face with anything too strong, or scrub too much. Wash your face 2 times a day and wear oil free sunscreen. Be very kind to your skin and yourself, then take it from there.
