WHILE many acne breakouts develop when we're young, it's definitely not just a teen problem. You can suffer with spots well into your 50s and if you're a blemish-prone adult, it pays to know about the best acne treatments you can get your hands on. Acne is caused by excess sebum production, which then sees oils mix with other things like dirt and dead skin cells to block pores. Bacteria can then get trapped in clogged pores and multiply, causing redness, swelling and those pesky pimples. Our hormones are often to blame for a spot uprising, while outside factors like pollution can also contribute to clogged pores. That's the bad news. The good news? There's a number of anti-blemish treatments out there that can really help battle your breakouts. It may take a bit of trial and error to see what works best for you, but we've rounded up the best acne treatment kits to eradicate zits for a clearer, brighter complexion. 1.

Charisma Perhaps it’s unfair to compare the charisma of a pop juggernaut with a small man in a very big hat. Truth be told, I’d prefer to reserve judgement until I’ve seen Beck covered in sand and writhing around in a bikini. Until that happens, I am left to judge them on natural magnetism alone, and the uncommonly beautiful, all-singing, all-dancing Beyoncé is the outright winner of this category.

Beck: 6Beyoncé: 9 Production Beck described the rare reunion of the five-piece band who performed on Sea Change as “like the aligning of nine planets”. The album’s sound – lifted with soaring orchestration by Beck’s father – is an engulfing soundscape worthy of the win, and evocative of the heartache his songs describe. Still, the production on Beyoncé’s … [Read more...] about Beck v Beyoncé: who should have won the Grammy for best album?
