I have been suffering from acne since i was 12-13 years old, and i'm soon turning 18 (18.juli, wiii )
For the last 2 years my acne have been mild incomparison to a more moderate breakout that i'm used to.
However, for the last 3 months I have been experiencing more acne on my face, first as small bumps but then developed into full mountain acne. I haven't used any spesific acne-products for 1-2 years, only cleasing, (sometimes toning) and moisturizer.
Therefor I have been thinking about starting to use Differin, but i'm very scared that it would do more harm than good. I don't have thaaaaaat much acne on my face, but enough to trouble me from going out without makeup. So should I starts using it or do you recommend something else? thanks.
I'm Vietnamese, living in Norway ( for the most very dry weather)
Combination skin = dry around my nose, mouth and eyes. Oily on my forehead and a little on my cheeks.
Mostly breakout on my cheeks and forehead.
I have used:
* benzyl peroxide (example epiduo): it have cleared me up, but also broken me out. It also leaves discoloration after the acne is gone. Can be very drying,
* Differin : tried it, but can't remember the results or how long i used it . .
* Clinique 3-step: sucked. dried my face up, but strangly made my forehead extremly oily . . hmm.
