I've been using Serious Skin Care Continuously Clear (Daily Ritual Cleanser & Moisturizer) and spot treating with the Dry Lo. My skin is finally getting back on track. I still breakout here and there but nothing compared to before.

I don't know if this will work, but my doctor prescribed it to me to get rid of little specks on the face:
Tazorac 0.05% - they also have some 0.10% ones

I'd suggest you check this out on the web first as I haven't had time to do that yet.

I recently saw another post regarding dents. I have some dents from old acne or pimples that scared and are NO LONGER red, just pitted maybe is the better choice of words. Just one or two pitts on the side of each cheek. Anyone have suggestions on "plumping up the pits", so they are filled in?

If you've got acne of any measure, just go straight to accutane -assuming of course you're not pregnant or anything. Works wonders.

I post this every time someone asks, but Spironolactone was a miracle for me. It is not marketed for this purpose, but it is VERY effective. And cheap, though it requires Rx.

I think accutane should only be pursued in serious acne cases...the potential side effects (not seen in everybody of course) need to be considered. I don't think it's just "something to try"...only if nothing else is working and your acne is serious.

So many great suggestions here.

When my skin really flares up, I drink plenty of aloe vera juice and put mashed up cucumber on my face as much as I can manage.

These things reduce inflammation.

Good Luck!

I agree with Paris. Accutane can have some serious consequences and is not something that I would ever want anyone that I am close to to subject themselves too:

It's just too dangerous in my opinion.

Take care.

Accutane should be the last resort if you have serious acne. Even then, I would approach with caution. I was told by my last dermatologist that there is only a 50/50 chance that Accutane would clear up your skin.

Know how you feel. Crying or Very sad I have a problem at the moment, too. Would recommend you go and see an experienced beauty therapist. My girlfriend (therapist) says that the area in which the acne appears can give good indications of the cause. For example, stress acne tends to show on the cheeks and jaw. Mine is hormonal, which is a bit harder to treat. The therapist I see swears by glycolic acid preparations on the acne-affected skin and - strangely - Gernetic bust tonic and cream (on the bust!) for hormonal rebalancing. Also, she tells me skin works in a 28-day renewal cycle, so if you go back to your old products and stick with them for a month, you might well return to your old self. Adding a glycolic acid treatment might accelerate this process. Good luck!

I use the 0.1% and it's done wonders for me overall. However, I still get the odd cyst. But at least I don't have colonies and whatever I get doesn't stick around anymore.

I'd try it; I never thought to before but as soon as I did, I wish I had sooner.

Good luck with your acne.

Aga, have your tried MD Vita-A-Plus clearing complex?

i had a really bad reaction to a green peel i did around 3 weeks ago, i had angry red pimples all around my mouth and forehead and i started using MD 2 weeks ago. Now my skin is clearer than ever and it has helped minimze the red acne marks left over where the pimple has healed.
It has really worked wonders for me so its worth giving a go. i also use this in conjunction with Jan Marini Bioglyolic Cleanser which leaves my skin so clean theres no need for a toner. An active cleansers with BHA/AHA like the JM might help clear your skin.

Don't know if this helps but I have found that stopping trying new things and cutting my skincare back right works for me. Less is more!

Knowing what triggers helps. One culprit for me was wearing foundation, the other is using glycolic washes etc (must have dried my skin out too much). Am not wearing foundation at all at the moment, just the odd but of concealer if I'm going out.


Current routine:
morning Organic Pharmacy rose gel in the shower, splash with cold water and rosehip oil to moisturise.

night time cleanse with Eve Lom cleansing balm or Organic pharmacy rose gel and muslin cloth, follow with rosehip oil (or if my skin is up to it a couple of times a week PTR hydrating lotion which is my only glycolic)

2-3 times a week, morning aspirin mask.

EJThomas,

Good tip about what your friend said about location of acne relating to cause. Would explain perhaps why my twin sister has been having problems with acne, mainly jaw and cheeks, and I haven't. She always says her kids are more stressful than mine Smile

But seriously, that was a good thought. I will pass that along to her and see if we can't help her destress as well as using topical stuff.

Hello, I'm 25. My skin has always been fair and rarely has any breakouts except for occasional ones around my nose. But a few days ago, I got a pimple on my cheek. It's huuugggeee!! Shock I've been applying clearasil BP Plus but see no improvement....it seems like it'll never go away..

Can anyone help me with this?

I'm also terribly unhappy and depressed with acne on my face. Tonight will be the 1st night that I will try Paula's choice products. I'll be back here to review if it's work... Very Happy

Ah. I feel the same way. I just can't seem to find any product that works for me. I've spent so much trying to find a product that works but nothing has yet. At least not for long. I'm still looking to find a product line or products that can heal my acne. So, I can't recommend any products. But I'll be looking at this thread frequently to see if something will work.

I'm so so sorry you are going through this. I have 3 pimples at the moment (that time of the month!) and its upsetting enough.
FYI - When i tried BHA Paula's Choice stuff it broke me out. I had really nice skin and i think it just didnt suit me. I use Dermalogica special cleansing gel (and more recently Carekate's lavender seafoam cleanser) which is great but i am yet to find my HG spot Pimple buster!
