I have small acne. But i know how you feel. Like it never goes away. I have noticed that my hair causes soem of it. I use Conditioner in my hair then my hair is usually done by my face and done my back. Then i start to get acne cause there is to much oil in thoughs areas. Then if i leave my make- up on over night i start to get more acne. I don't know what to tell you. I use Clear skin by avon but my causes of ance is probably different then yours.

Okay, I hope this isnt grave digging, but I would like to revive this thread.

I'm only 12 and this was my first year of acne and it is absolutely DREADFUL.
It always moves around. Once my chin was super bad, than my nose, than my back shoulders, than my cheeks but it always stays on my forehead.
Sure after a 2-3 weeks it goes away from one place, but than it spreads somewhere else and gets worse! At first I just scrubbed it with soap every day 3 times a day. After I wake up. After I get home from school, and right before bed. The soap worked until my skin got used to it. than it got worse. I tried Clearasil and used the same cycle, and it worked the same way. I used Neautragena Pink Grapefruit gel thing and I used it the same way and it worked the same way, but it worked a bit more and it just started the downfall. I wanna try one or two more products before I go to a doctor. I will try almost everything. Can anyone help?

Duac. >_> Talk to your doctor. If he/she isn't a dermatologist, they'll refer you to one.

I've been using Garnier's face scrub for a few years; though, using it for so long has caused it to stop working for me, so I need to switch to something else. You might want to try it; though, get the gel and not the cream, as the cream one is far more abrasive and might just agitate your skin more than help it.



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

You should definitely try going to your doctor like Miranda said.

I use to have SUPER bad acne. Big red nasty...ew. Nothing worked on it. I tried Pro Active, that didn't work.

I went to my doctor and they prescribed some antibiotics that cleared it right up. It was this clear cream...and I haven't really had acne since, besides the ocassional bump when it gets close to my period.




If I treated you bad, you'd bruise my face. Couldn't love you more you got a beautiful taste. Don't let the days go by...glycerine.

I have really bad acne. Its all over my face, my shoulders, and my chest. My face wash is AMAZING, and I have a special routine for it.

When I first get up in the morning I use this stuff called "Obagi Gel Foam"(i think). Then I use Clean & Clear's Toner. Then before I go to bed, I wash my face with Clean & Clear's black head clearing scrub, and I use the toner again. It seems like a lot but it's pretty easy once you get used to it.

I consider myself at war with my acne. It switches between two tactics; numerous spots coming up or a few REALLY FREAKING BIT ONES.

I don't particularly care, but if I got a good chance to get rid of it I would. =S On the other hand, nothing beats popping a big yellow one. XD Disgusting I know, but nothing beats it.

Ditto.

I used to have issues with acne before BC, but after I started it I would only get 1 big one before my period, normally on my chin. I get them on my chin a lot, and for a while I had thought maybe I was touching my chin too much and just not noticing it.

But anywho, my point to telling you all this is because I went to go see my doctor last month. Being off the BC has brought a 'war' of acne. Little ones everywhere and numerous big ones on the chin. I hated it and I wanted a prescription for it. My doctor said to try a different face wash and to stop using moisturizer and that's helped a lot, but more importantly he said the big ones on the chin are hormone related. Being off the BC has seriously messed with my hormone levels (they took blood to test my levels on a previous visit and they were low from being off the BC).

So my point is if you ladies get them a lot, and a surplus of them around your period to try BC. It's more than just a contraceptive, it helps keep your hormone levels in line too.

But if you're main area of the mosters are the chin you should ask your doctor to check your levels and to see what you should do about it if they're high/low.

I had a REALLY bad skin condition due to hormone inbalance,
so I went on the pill, staring eating better and drinking lots of water.

Also, washing your face; gets rid of oil!
Your skin acts different at night so I tend to dry it out over night then moisturise in the morning.
My skin is WAY better.

You should be careful about how you go about washing your face, tho. Using either soap and water, or a harsh skin toner (for example, one that's alcohol based) will do more harm than good. It will dry out your skin, so your skin will start producing even more oil. Use a gentle cleanser and toner that's meant for sensitive skin, and you'll be fine.
