Question: I'm 21 and I have persistent acne. It's gotten worse over the years. I get really deep, painful cysts and my skin is pretty oily. It gets oilier as the day goes on. I have been left with a lot of dark acne scars. I have tried all the creams, all the washes, lemon juice, all the masks, peels.. everything I can think of. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do or any other things I can try or medications I can request from my doctor? I'm just really tired of dealing with acne. I've done it long enough.

You are what you eat! A healthy diet and lots of water will be your greatest improvement. Also, it sounds like you are over cleansing your face. Our brains are powerful. When we don't drink enough water, our skin gets dehydrated. Our heart and lungs need water, so the brain will suck every spare drop out of your skin/fatty tissue to keep your organs functioning. Our bodies cannot create water on its own, but it can create oil (sebum) So what happens is the brain will trigger oil production on the face. We confuse that with oily skin, and then buy a harsh cleanser to strip all that oil away. The skin feels nice and smooth, but the brain will make *more* oil and the cycle continues. I think you should get a cream based cleanser, something that does not give you a tight feeling after cleansing. A simple basic cleanser would be Cetaphil. If you look at their ingredient label, it will give you an idea of the basic ingredients. I always suggest using something with less ingredients. The more ingredients, the more likely an allergy, and the harder it is to pinpoint down.

Aminogenesis facial repair gets rid of acne scars really well. For best price on it search ebay. It's awesome for scars/burns/general skincare. You're 16 so acne is normal b/c of hormones but watch your diet and drink lots of water. Change your pillowcase often. The skin is an organ of elimination, don't eat crap, it comes right out your skin.

Seriously, if you've tried one or two commercial products and they dont work, go see your doctor. Yes, this sounds silly and drastic, but- -Your doctor will most likely perscribe you Akamin, a type of medication formulated for acne. This didnt work for me, but I know a few people on it who it works really well for. -You can get perscription-only skin cream. This stuff tends to really clear acne up in a few weeks, however it might make your skin a little dry. -If you're desperate, and you're a chick, there is a variant of the Pill formulated to work against acne- either Brenda or Juliet works really well, but Diana will probably make you gain weight. I take Juliet. Otherwise, a lot of commercial products work fairly well, but you cant expect instant results. You also have to remember that a lot of acne is due to hormones, not cleanliness either. If you've been using commercial products for a year or two, and it hasn't cleared up to your satisfaction, you'll probably need some kind of medication for it. It helps, trust me ^_~

Niacinamide face cleansing pads are an effective and simple way to keep acne away. Just place a pad on the pimple and watch it fade away. Lavender Oil helps prevent skin drying. Niacinamide also helps diminish skin-hyperpigmentation (acne scars) Niacinamide pads are also known as Vitamin B3 pads or Nicotinamide pads. Works on body acne too. Give them a try and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Try the Clean and Classic kind of head and shoulders shampoo, I know it sounds nuts, but if u rub it on your face in the shower, rinse it off and then rub it on again and towel dry it without rinsing. It worked for me! So much! The acne gets cleared by the pyrothione zinc in it. Look up more stuff about it online if u like!

Water. Hydration helps alot, as does what you eat. Drinking more water will help, as will cutting down on carbonated beverages. Also, wash your face especially well where you hold your cell phone to your face. Think of all the places you set your phone that you then touch to your face. Lastly, as hard as it may be. Leave it alone. Touching your face transfers the oils from your hands (which have bacteria) to your face, not helping your already oily skin.

For ACNE I would recommend you go see a dermatologist…however if you would rather try something on the market here is my suggestion: ARBONNE Clear Advantage. This is a 4-step system. It includes an ACNE wash that is deep cleaning to unclog pores and keep outbreaks under control. A toner that contains alpha hydroxyl acids to help balance and calm skin, it removes excess oil and leaves skin soft, smooth and refreshed. A daily acne lotion that is oil free and penetrates deep to sooth and clarify skin. The fourth system is designed to help balance out the hormonal imbalance that is at the root cause of the acne breakouts. It is a dietary supplement that supports the skin from inside out. It is infused with vitamins, minerals, l-lysine- an amino acid. The product comes with a 45-day money back guarantee. Your skin needs an adjustment period to any product you try. To see most benefit you will need to give the product time to work. Most of all you should not mix brands. The products in each brand are formulated to work together to give you best results. By mixing brands (i.e.: different moisturizer, different toner….) you can diminish the effectiveness of each product. To find ARBONNE products visit: http://tryitandloveit.myarbonne.com Here are a few other good things for your skin: Diet affects everything in our bodies. It plays a vital role in how you look, feel and of course how you age. Eating right to keep your skin soft, glowing and strong at any age: ·Orange/red fruits and vegetables: can include tomatoes, squash and carrots- these are packed with beta-carotene, which is an antioxidant that is essential for healthy skin, scalp and mucous membranes. ·Shellfish and fish: try salmon, crab, shrimp and lobster- contain astaxanthin, an extremely potent antioxidant that protects your skin from the damaging environment, helps prevent age spots and wrinkling. ·Nuts and seeds- these are rich in vitamin E which helps protect the skin from sun damage ·Citrus fruits- such as oranges, grapefruits, are high in Vitamin C. It is essential to collagen production, and it is the collagen that gives connective tissue strength and resilience. ·Unrefined whole grain- these could be wheat, barley, oats and rye- all contain silica, a mineral that helps to repair damaged skin, hair and nails. Silica helps to strengthen collagen and elastin. Anti-Aging Super- Foods: Top pick for this category include any deeply pigmented fruits and vegetables. This includes tomatoes, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, berries and grapes, garlic, onions, green tea, soybean, cold-water fish and spices such as turmeric, cinnamon and cumin. All of these are very rich in PHYTOCHEMICALS. These are the molecules that give the food the striking color, taste or smell. Their responsibility is to defend the plants against infection and environmental damage, and in humans they have shown to have anticancer activity. And, just like antioxidants, they help protect the body against harmful free radicals and vascular disease. These foods also contain omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids help lower cholesterol, improve insulin sensitivity, reduce inflammation and facilitate weight loss. Dark leafy greens, cold water fish and soybean are an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids. They are also considered “hot” foods – they help the body burn calories in the form of heat, just by eating them. Three key elements to help your skin look its best: ·Avoid the damaging sun: with 90% of aging caused by environmental damage and sun exposure, ensure that you wear a product that contains a broad-spectrum sun block, and use it every day. Harmful sunrays penetrate clouds…so sun block is needed on cloudy days as well. Arbonne uses the latest in sunscreen technology in their day creams to ensure that you are protected from both the UVB and UVA rays. ·Practice good skin care: Using skin care products incorrectly can cause problems later in life. Learn how to remove make-up, and apply sunscreen to let skin breath. Follow up with exfoliation to encourage skin cell turnover, and finish with a light moisturizer to protect the skin’s water barrier. ·Don’t mix brands: With hundreds of skin care products launched each year, it’s no wonder that many of us try the latest products…however that can lead to skin irritation and the development of sensitive skin. Skin care products need time to work, and as your body becomes accustomed to the formulas …you will see benefit. Each brand develops products to work together for best results. Pick a brand and stick with it.
