Tiny bumps :(

So this deal with acne will never cease! I don't have any huge pimples nor cysts anymore. However, I am getting these tiny clogged pores an bumps here and there on my chin, upper lip/hose area, and forehead/hairline.

When I used BP, it worked great to get rid of these! Now that I can't use it, they are coming back and I'm curious how to treat them.

I've been using AHA+ all over about a few times a week, which brings them to the surface into little white heads to they heal faster and go away. Problem is they come back. I've been using Tea tree oil 5% every other day, but since it is drying I try to limit it so I don't irritate my skin.

I guess I touch my face more, and pick at my hairline and forehead. This probably propentiates the cycle.

Is there anything that has the effects of benzoyl but yet isn't benzoyl? haha doesn't BP bring oxygen into the pores to the bacteria die?

Anyways, I can't complain about my skin, looking back on how horrible it was. I'm open for a new regimen that includes sulfate free products and a new diet.

I too suffer from the clogged pores and occasional bumps underneath my skin, sometimes they turn into whiteheads and sometimes they just sit there on my face. I started to use Paula's Choice 2% BHA gel. It exfoliates inside the pore and it does bring the clogs to the surface, but it has helped my skin so much. The texture of my skin is so much smoother. The areas that used to fill up and clog don't anymore, and it is now just purging other areas. I really only breakout if my diet goes haywire or I neglect my routine. I would look into it on here and on her website. Hope this helps!

Thanks for your advice! I will look into this. Do you use Paula's choice everyday? Once a day?
