I've seen several friends go visit China, and come back with 2x worse acne. One guy actually didn't have acne, and he came back with face full of it. I guess the main reason is the poor air quality there.

I'm 18, and don't really get breakouts anymore after I started working out and drinking lots of green tea. But I'm afraid the trip is going to agrevate my acne problem.

What can I do to prepare for the potential onslaught?

I wouldn't recommend that. Because it also kills all the good bacteria in your body.

I would stay away from fried greasy food. Rice also aggravates acne, so easy on the rice. I'd take some good multivitamins to strengthen your immune system. At least 5grams of Vitamin C (powder version).

I heard that one other guy infact actually had his skin cleared when he went to china. It must be the diet,water and the air. Guess it really depends which part of china you are going to.
