I'm a 20 year old girl who's been dealing with acne since high school. I've gone through about a million different regimens in my battle with acne. In addition to my blackheads, I used to have pretty bad inflamed hormonal acne, mostly in my chin region. I also used to have a lot of clogged pores on my temples as well as my chin. I've managed to get all of that under control with my current regimen and ortho cyclen birth control, except the blakheads all over my nose. It feels like their never going to budge. Through all the things I've tried they always stay the same. It's incredibly frustrating.
Here's my current regimen:
Paula's Choice 2% BHA gel
Olay moisturizer for sensative skin SPF 15
Desert Essence tea tree oil pad
Paula's Choice again
It's the BHA that's made the most difference I've been using it for about 3 months and it really dealt with most of my congestion. It just doesn't seem to be enough to clear out those blackheads.
Things I've tried:
Oil cleansing method - It helped my skin for awhile, but 4 months in my skin became the worst it's ever been
BP - Controled my inflamed acne, but my blackheads got way worse
Basically every drugstore product available without success
I'm really interested in trying green cream, but I'm scared because it's so expensive and I'm worried I'll have a really bad initial break out that I don't want to deal with when my skin looks the best it's looked in 5 years.
What would you wonderful people recommend?
