Hey guys!

This is my first post and I'm kind of new to acne.org since I've only looked through a few message boards and stuff like that smile.png

Anyway, I'm 14 and my name's Stephanie.

I've had acne since I was about 10 and I'm FINALLY going to the dermatologist... in March sad.png

I break out in the middle of my forehead, the sides of my nose and a little bit out (kind of that "winged out" part hehe), and on my chin (lots of scarring there ) :(. I'll occasionally get zits on my jaw line, temples (probably about every 2-3 months), and sometimes on my cheeks (but I think it's acne-rosacea). My chin gets clogged really easily (gross!!!) and I get blackheads on my nose (they're little though). I don't get cysts really at all, but I've had 2 or 3 since I started getting pimples.

Okay, gross part's over smile.png

I eat pretty well...mostly organic and it's a pretty balanced diet (fruits and veggies> cookies and cake smile.png)

I've tried Neutrogena, Olay (the facial pads when I was younger), Clearasil, a bunch of Clean and Clear, MaxClarity, Paula's Choice (Hydralight system), and Clinique (3-step system). I have really really sensitive skin with rosacea on my cheeks.

Anyway this is what I use:

AM:

Serious Skin Care Continously Clear Daily Ritual Cleanser

Triderma MD Facial Redness Repair lotion (only on my cheeks)

Serious Skin Care Continously Clear 2% Salicylic Acid pads (only in my t-zone)

Serious Skin Care Continously Clear Clearz-it to spot treat (5% Benzoyl Peroxide)

Serious Skin Care Emu and Aloe Soothing Facial cream

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 30

and foundation to cover up my redness, pimples, and scarring smile.png

PM:

Clean and Clear makeup remover wipes (only thing I like from them smile.png

Serious Skin Care Continously Clear Daily Ritual Cleanser used with my Skinsonic (basically same thing as a Clarisonic) and the Sensitive brush head

Triderma MD Facial Redness Repair lotion (only on my cheeks again)

Serious Skin Care Continously Clear 2% Salicylic Acid pads (only in my t-zone again)

Serious Skin Care Emu and Aloe Soothing Facial cream

Serious Skin Care Dry-Lo 10% Sulfur spot treatment to get any "honkers" (love this stuff!!)

Occasionally:

Aveeno Positively Radiant scrub (Sunday and Wednsday nights)

Jergens Natural Glow Tan (only when I need it...I'm really pale)

Lotss of SSC stuff. I've found it's the only thing that has kept my skin under control.

so, yeah smile.png Like I said, I'm going to the derma in March (that's the earliest we could get in!) and I'll update when I need to smile.png

xoxo, Steph

you're lucky to have it when you are younger though. so that it can get treated right away and you know how to deal with it in the future. i just turned 21 and had a horrible breakout of hormonal acne and its starting to leave scars on my face :(

good luck with the derm!
