Pimples and acne usually make their first appearance at the beginning of puberty and are linked to the hormonal changes occuring in the body.

There are endless products available but rather than using all kinds of things on your skin and not getting anywhere it is better to seek professional advice by either going to see your GP or a Dermatologist - but the first step is to discuss this with your parents.
