Struggling

I am a 26 year old female who has been struggling with acne for as long as I can remember. I have spent thousand of dollars buying acne products that don't work! During high school I always tried over the counter products, and of course, no results. As I got older, my acne seemed to get better until the past 3 years. I had a baby in 2008 and since then my skin has been out of control! I tried Murad, Proactiv, skin ID....again with no results. Ive been to a dermatologist, which their treatment seem to give some results, but not much. Their treatment included doxycycline, retin-a at night and benzaclin in the morning. I used those products for close to a year, but just recently have gotten frustrated with them because they stopped working! I have decided to go off of all of that and try just a mild soap and apple cider vinegar. My skin is getting worse. I am going to continue to use the ACV for 6 weeks to see if I get results.

You could try the citaphil mild soap cleanser....it's very mild and it will clean your skin with out stripping it...it also washes makeup away...I was there were you are now with the fustration. My acne only got worse after my son was born it was horrible! I also tried everything, and that's why I'm on the accutane now. I know it suks! Only people who have acne can understand and really know the pain like we do.... :boohoo: Good Luck!
