I don't have bad acne at all, but there's enough on my chin that it annoys me (barely anything, but I'd rather have a completely clear face like I used to have before high school). I've been using a salicylic acid wash and Benzaclin for a long time now, and it hasn't worked very well.

Would something like this be worth trying? I read good reviews, and I noticed there were a lot of Proactive converts - Proactive never worked for me, and it didn't work for them either, but apparently this stuff did.

Chances are that you touch your face alot. Either stop or wash your face more.

Oh and not being a teenager helps too.

Oral antibiotics are your best bet.

My doctor wanted me to take it to take care of my acne, but with suicide being one of the side effects..I rather not.

How long does the kit last if you wash twice a day? $100 seems a little steep unless it lasts for 6 months straight or something.

Each one lasts me about a month. SkinMedica's seriously the best stuff on the market though, it's gotten my face the cleanest out of every other face wash I've used and it doesn't make my face feel tight or dry my skin out at all. Its pretty sweet

EDIT: Also go to your dermatologist (or if you dont have one, go see one) and see what kind of acne you have. For me, I have a kind of skin infection and I've been talking erithromycin [sp?] and its actually killed most of my acne off. Also you could talk to them about Acutane if you really wanna kick it for good.

In my high school days I had proactive and stuff and they never worked. They are designed to help out people who have bad acne yes, but the problem lies in your horomones, not in your skin; so proactive and skin care products aren't going to help you much. Washing your face is as good as proactive if you do it twice a day.

You're just a teenager and it's something you've got to deal with.

Whoever said semen is actually correct. Alot of high end skin care products contain semen as well as foreskin to help maintain a clear complexion.

Then explain how people in high school actually get results from using acne treatment products. Nothing anyone has recommended has worked for me, but it certainly has for them.


EDIT: Shut up about the semen already. It's not funny the 300th time someone says it.

Your a gross teenager with raging horomones, lack of sleep, and stress levels above everyone else because you lack friends and a social life and you get bad grades and also you smell?

No, kidding, but seriously my point is that hormones play large part in this, and as such, everyone's acne is different.

I'm sure you know people who never touch skin care products in their lives and go through high school without a single pimple, too. I know I did.

They were the cool kids, obviously.

Cause everyone is different? Acne is a pain in the ass. You just gotta keep washing your face, use the med the doctor said to, and just prayer your hormones don't act up.

Not true, any change in your testosterone levels can cause you to break out, which means that if you do it regularly, cutting it out will cause you to break out. Look it up, brah.

The only thing I've tried is proactive, and while it seems to clear up my pimples and prevent new ones from forming, it hasn't had much effect on my blackheads.

I have a TON of blackheads, especially on my nose. Anyone know of a way to get rid of them? I squeeze them out occasionally but it seems like they always come back.

I have a bit of acne, and ProActive didn't work for me either.

If it really bugs you, just go to the doctor and ask them about it. I got an antibiotic and some kind of cream and it worked really well. But then after both of the prescriptions were gone my mom decided that she wasn't going to buy another one. All of my acne was almost gone, and with one fell swoop, it all came back.

I would seriously buy the prescriptions again if I had enough money.

Take fish oil pills. Its good for your skin and can do a small amount of detox work from the inside. Also talk to your doctor about it. They can prescribe an antibiotic that will also do work from the inside.

Really, acne is a medical condition that is caused by bacteria in your skin. Taking meds to kill the bacteria will (mostly) take care of your acne. I also use Clearasil Ultra. It has these beads in it that will help take off the nasty acne covered layers of skin and leave you with a clear face.

Acne sucks. I've been on Accutane for it before and will have to go back on it to completely get rid of it.

theres an antibiotic cream called bepanthon (sp?) thats made for rashes and infections that works really well on pimples.
thankfully i've left puberty so i only get pimples every now and then but this stuff gets rid of it by the next day usually.

The sun.

Seriously, just go outside and get a bit of sun, a healthy tan, and your skin will clear right up.

Of course don't hang around and burn yourself...replacing acne with skin cancer would probably be a bad trade.

It sucks. Dries out your entire body and chaps your lips like crazy. Its also pretty toxic. Thats why they only give it to people with otherwise untreatable systic acne. If you talk to a doctor about it though they'll let you know if you should take it or not.

Don't squeeze them, it irritates the skin and causes more.

This is how I keep my face clear in the summer. The sun isn't very strong in the fall and winter in New Jersey, though - not to mention, going outside is the last thing on my mind because it's already very cold.
