I'm in the same boat as you. I am 20.

The thing that helps the most is seeing a dermatologist. I actually take pills for it. Hasn't stopped it, but has made is significantly better. I mean it's not just about looks. Pimples, when they're new, can hurt like a motherfucker.

But if you don't have the money for that, and it's still bad, I'd recommend experimenting. My sister uses clearasil and it works perfectly for her. Doesn't do much for me. I use Clean & Clear which I find more effective. Everyone is different and has different skin, so different things work for different people.

How long is your hair, because the oils can transfer onto your face and give you spots. Also if you can, put a fresh towel over your pillow every night to stop oils building up on your pillow.

Get a clean towel every night, and put it over your pillow. It's not exactly the most comfortable thing, but it really works on reducing the chances of breakouts. Just remember to switch towels every night or it's not going to help.

When I don't have any pimples my face is generally pretty clear, but like onnce a week ill get a big pimple or 2 and then my face is fuucked for the next 3-4 days.

I just wash my face with cetaphil 2-3x a day and it usually does the trick.

Keep your hair short. Everytime I get my head buzzed the small bits of acne I have disappears.

Be sure to shave all the time too. I smashed my face into the ground the other day and my chin has these hugeass cuts on the so I cant shave

Haha I meant that when I don't have any pimples my face is clear, as in some people even if they don't have any pimples you can have red marks and acne scars and shit.

You can go to the doctor for it, I take tablets and use a special oil thing called Zineryt, on prescription. It works really well.

Yeah, that's how it is with me. But if you're able to, I'd recommend seeing a dermatologist. Ever since I started taking these pills, those big pimples haven't came at all. Maybe a small one in a while.

And consider yourself extremely lucky not to have scarring. I have scarring and it sucks. It's the most difficult thing to get rid of.

Get alot of sun time. When I worked as a gardener and was out in the sun for like 8 hours a day my face cleared up reall nice. Too bad I quit that job..lol

I used to use things like Yes To Tomatos, that was okay but it wasn't stopping it. I stopped using it and just put a blue drawing paste on at night in appropriate places and wash off what ever is left in the morning with nothing more than warm water.

The less things like soap and product that touch my face usually works better, plastering layers of chemicals on won't always to you a world of good.

Acne will probably go away if you don't eat a bunch of junk food, and don't touch your face a lot. If not, then you'll have to mosey over to the dermatologist.

Also, if you smoke weed - I think I remember hearing that weed gives you acne.

Wash your face once a day (not a shit ton of times or your body starts pumping out the oils en masse), and keep your dirty fingers off of it.

didn't read all the posts but acne is usually caused by food, it's hard to eat 100% clean but that's how to stop it, it will go away by itself evetually, extra virgin coconut oil is good too

It seems like mine come in cycles. Maybe I'm a girl. I'll have to check when I get a chance.

pics or the spots aren't actually on your face and they're not called acne, they're herpes.
