Bad Breakouts

3 posts in this topic

I have always suffered from acne, yet recently i have started to suffer from more severe acne and I can't seem to get it under control. Ive tried so many different products, yet because i have sensitive skin, i cant seem to find one that can help my acne at all. Ive been using acne free but it doesnt seem to be helping. I have read reviews on the De La Cruz Sulfer Ointment but im not sure if i want to try it because some reviews say it helped, while others explain how it made their face worse. I really need some help in pointing me into the right direction on what products would be best to help my acne. PLEASE HELP ME! IM DESPERATE!

Try a wash with no acne treatment in it itself. Or perhaps going on the caveman regimen. But first things first, don't drastically change anything about your skin routine. I tend to have my worst breakouts when I'm jumping from product to product. I used to try something, and if it didn't work in a week or two I'd be discouraged and try something else. DON'T DO THAT! Skin loves routine, and the simpler you make it, the better your skin will turn out.

Since you didn't mention what kind of acne you have I will give you a list:

Small pimples and red spots = Use Cetaphil sensitive skin soap and wash your face 2 times a day, evening and morning. Apply Benzouyl peroxide in the evening after washing face.

Pimples, angry red spots, Nodules and inflamed pimples = Use cetaphil sensitive skin soap 2x a day, and also use Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% or salycilic acid, apply after washing your face to troubled areas 2x a day.

SEVERE ACNE = Cystic acne = large angry swollen bumps that develop into hard or soft lumps under the skin = ACCUTANE.
