Like....a 2 out of 10. Your acne is VERY mild, would most likely be solved from putting BP or salicylic acid on the pimples every night. Don't forget to moisturize too.

You shouldn't feel self conscious....your skin is clear for the most part.

Your skin looks pretty good! Really not bad acne at all.

I think the typical benzoyl peroxide type acne treatment would work out for you - though it would most likely mean continued use even after getting clear skin - that's just how BP seems to work.

I give it a 1. I would actually consider that clear :). I def agree with the above posters. A little BP goes a long way. I personally like Oxy Clinical 5% BP. It has worked wonders for me. Also, maybe try an exfoliator & cleanser in one like Clean & Clear Daily Pore Cleanser.

*Apply Olay Regenerist Micropurifying Foaming wash & use Clarisonic

I'd say a two. Your acne is very mild. I doubt you'll need to worry about a derm, you'd probably see good results out of most over the counter products. Try some BP.


Daily Regimen:
-Clean and Clear Foaming Cleanser
-Dan's 2.5% BP
-Jojoba oil as moisturizer

Nightly Regimen:
-Clean and Clear Foaming Cleanser
-Dan's 2.5% BP
-Cetaphil moisturizer + a few drops of Jojoba oil
