I have been dealing with acne for about 2 years now. (I'm 15) It started off on my forehead and slowly moved it way to my whole face + shoulders. I've tried just about every skincare brand known to man as well. I went to my doctor about a year ago and got a cream from him which did nothing so I was sent to a dermatologist. The dermatologist literally looked at me for two seconds and prescribed me two creams to use each night; altering between creams. They were called Tactuo and Biacna.I used them for about four months but literally nothing happened so I stopped (my skin was becoming really dry and irritated)
So now I'm stuck..I have acne all over my face (Mostly my cheeks) I have some flat, red bumps and regular pimples all over my face.
I've tried to drink lots of water because I've heard that helps and....nothing! I drink tons of water a day and it doesn't seem to help at all. I haven't had sugary drinks in months, but still no results.
Also, the only time I touch my face is when I'm washing/moisturizing it..I use a clean pillow case each night
My current skincare routine is to wash my face twice a day with the Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser and moisturize twice a day with the Neutrogena Oil-Free SPF 15 Moisturizer. I've stopped using masks, scrubs, etc. because I found they ultimately did not help with my acne. So I considering using the Regimen, but I've tried lots of BP creams before and I had no results.
If you have any suggestions, tips, etc. please let me know!
