Okay, so here's my skin situation. I'm 19 and I've always struggled to control my moderate non-inflamed acne. I have blackheads mostly, tons of them on my nose, between my eyebrows and on my chin. I also get occasional breakouts of them on my temples. I've never had a huge problem with pimples, 3-4 per month that I just pop and conceal until the mark goes away. But then I came home from University about a week and a half ago and I experienced the worst breakout I've ever had in my life 5-7 active pimples at all times for about a week, and as the week progressed the red marks just added up. I'm just recovering now and my face is a bit of a train wreck. I currently have 12-15 red marks, mostly around my chin and mouth on the left side of my face (I usually lean on my hand, so I'm going to stop that). I also have a lot of little bumps on my left temple, as well as a smattering of them everywhere else on my face. And the blackheads of course are, as always, out in fine form. Right now they are mostly across my nose and cheeks, as well as some in between my eyebrows and lots on my chin.

I've never been really good at keeping a steady regimen, which I assume is why I've never gotten my blackheads under control. I manage to beat this surprise breakout with a combination of random products that I have at my disposal. But it's motivated me to get on a regular regimen, and I thought logging it here would help me stay motivated.

Here are the products I will be using:
Clean & Clear Soothing Eye Makeup Remover
Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser (5% BP)
Clean & Clear Advantage Blackhead Clearing Astringent (1% SA)
Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer (0.5% SA)
Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment (2% SA)
St. Ives Blemish & Blackhead Clearing Apricot Scrub (2% SA)
Olay Pore Minimizing Cleanser and Scrub

Also, in case anyone is wondering, this is the makeup I use to conceal my spots:
Covergirl Concealer Stick
Covergirl Trublend Liquid Foundation
Covergirl Pressed Powder for Normal Skin (although I would say my skin is more combination)

Here's my routine:
Remove makeup if necessary
BP Cleanser
SA Astringent
SA Moisturizer
Spot treat if necessary
Conceal if necessary

I'll be doing this once in the morning and once at night. I will also add the scrub every other day and use the Olay cleanser whenever I am showering outside of the early morning and before bed time frame (such as after the gym).

This is day one and I already like the way my skin is feeling, softer than normal, although it looks exactly the same.

Wish me luck! Also, if you have any advice about products I should be using or warnings about ones that I shouldn't be I welcome it. Edited by Jamie99

It's very easy to over dry your skin which will cause your body to overproduce oil. This can cause more breakouts. I have been using exfoliating pads that I bought at this online store [url="http://www.amazon.com/shops/A39T96CWU5UTWY"]http://www.amazon.com/shops/A39T96CWU5UTWY[/url]. They are cleansing pads and exfoliate at the same time. I had 3 stubborn cysts on my chin that were super deep, and within several days they came to surface. My blackheads around my nose and forehead have cleared up and the pores are smaller. I started the week after Thanksgiving, so within a month I have seen a difference. I also like to use a natural astringent such as which hazel.
