    One of my sons is in the stage where he is starting to break out so I wanted to look up some tips on how to help him. I really appreciated how this article talked about oily skin results in clogged pores and therefore breakouts. I will have to let him know to clean his face of oils and if it gets too bad checking out a dermatologist.
