If you're struggling with acne, you will quickly find that a lot of people with the best of intentions will manage to offer up tons of truly useless information to help you try to get rid of it. Your BFF may suggest popping a zit to have it gone by school picture day. (Don't do it!)

"People always see me with makeup and think that I don’t break out—but I do and I hate it," Miley Cyrus has told J-14. "That’s something I get so upset about—anytime that happens, I’m just like, ‘Ahh, I’m so frustrated,’ and it makes me so mad.

Everyone gets some sort of pimples, whiteheads, or blackheads at some point, it just varies from person to person about the type and severity!
