Hi

I'm Amy. I'm 23. I'm new to this site. I've been suffering with acne on and off since I was about 16. At the moment it is really bad :( I have at least about 20 pimples on forehead and jawline, blackheads on nose and soooo many scars all over. It sucks. I've had good luck with some acne products but only for a limited time, then I have to go on a quest to find something new lol. The most effective product lines I've used have been Neutrogena and Aveeno. I can't say the same for Clearasil, Clean&Clear or Proactiv. Right now I'm about a month in on a line named Alba Acnedote(deep pore wash,toner,and oil free moisturizer). I haven't really seen improvement so far, I'm trying to be patient since they advise a month to 2 months to see improvements on any acne regimen.Or I don't know if I should go back to the products I have had luck on in the past?? Will they be as effective as before??
