Best Answer nicmic62, 02 April 2013 - 02:00 AM

I've always had clear skin but i've been getting these pimples on my forehead for a while now and also on my t zone, probably since i hit puberty.. (i'm 17 now) and they're getting me so frustrated. I've tried nearly everything to try and get rid of them from chemical peels, to scrubs, to facials and acne creams. I just want clear skin and i can't seem to achieve that sad.png i'm using the 3 step anti blemish by clinque and i'm thinking of stopping it since i dont see any progress in my skin. Can anyone recommend any treatments/medication for this?  sad.png My skin is usually really oily on my t zone. 

 

How long have you been using each product? Most of the time you need to give a product 3 months to notice change. Switching products every so often will just not work because your skin isn't given enough time to work with the medication to elinimate the acne/pimples.

Its been around 2 months now, and before that i went to a place that specialises in acne and they gave me a routine for my ''acne''. It made my skin worse so i stopped using their products and went onto using clinque. I don't know whether i should change to cetaphil as its less harsh?

I have been a cetaphil user for a very very long time. Almost 10 years I think. Anyway, I do The Regimen now and if it has taught me anything, its that you need to very gently with your skin. Gentle cleanser and moisturizer that doesn't clog pores and doesn't dry out your skin. And then you also have the acne fighting topical or what have you. Before my acne went out of control, I used a tretinoin cream. It worked really well for me as a spot treatment. By the looks of your picture, it doesn't look that bad. Maybe you can give that a shot.

Happy to say the regimen I use works. I'm 100% clear and I usually only get 2-3 spots when I get my period. It's no biggie though, coz it goes away pretty fast. It is tailored to the acne.org regimen, I just don't use their products because of the shipping charges. But hey...give it a shot. A lot of people have great success with it.

 

Good luck! :)

Thanks! I use a 10% glycolic acid gel which is a chemical exfoliant. It really helped when my skin was going through the dry and flaky phase you get when using benzoyl peroxide. I also use a physical exfoliant twice a week just to help the glycolic acid. I use a St. Ives scrub targeted for blackheads.
