Hey guys!

This is my little sister. Shes been getting really fusturated with her skin lately. :( She has to me mild acne but to her it seems like severe. Lol shes 13 and really dramatic! =p Can you rate it for her and maybe recommened products that will clear her up nicely? Shes been having little breakouts here and there since probally about last year and shes used a retin A micro but recently shes run out should she get more? Shes using a tretionoid now in 0.5% and clean and clear pursa gel in the BP 10%. Should she try CSR or get accuature? Lol! Like I said Dramatic she did all the circles!(I cant really see the zits there) HELP

This is mild.

If a doctor prescibed her accutane he would be negligible. Nothing dramatic is needed. Maybe if you posted her pics on some site where guys can rate them; she'd get lots of response she's beautiful.

Maybe some a** at school said something and she's taking it as gospel.

It's barely mild. Accutane would be seriously overkill considering she is only 13 and breakouts are pretty normal.

A lot of people would kill for her skin. She looks just FINE, I really wouldn't say she has acne. If she wants to consider it real acne, then it's incredibly mild. That looks completely normal to me.

i think all the products she is using is for more moderate acne not wikid mild! not to mention that is probobly why her skin is so red and dry bc of all those products. 10% BP is exteremly drying and dehydrates the skin and she is using 2 other prescriptions, she is probobly breaking out form using those because they are way to irritating. Have her use Dan's BP and Cleanser and a Moisturizer. Thaty is all she needs.

You look fine. I can tell you are using a retinoid, because of the redness and peeling, but I agree that to call this severe is absurd. It's barely mild. Seems to be responding to the meds. You do have some makeup on, because of the eyeliner. (Maybe no foundation??)

A doctor would be "negligent" if he allowed serious medicines like accutane, but I don't know what you looked like before the topicals.

Don't even try to call it moderate, many people on the board would love to have that skin. However, if you are only 13 then you have lots of years ahead of you where it can get a whole heck of a lot worse. I'm not trying to be a dooms-dayer, it's just unnecesary to get freaked out by a few zits at 13 when it is perfectly normal. It's when you've been 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, ... 32, 33, 35, etc.

13 is the least of your problems.

Good luck!

Virtually non-existant acne. Can't even call it mild.

A lot of people would kill for her skin. She looks just FINE, I really wouldn't say she has acne. If she wants to consider it real acne, then it's incredibly mild. That looks completely normal to me.

I agree.

She's cute but I guess if she's 13 that means end of middle school and/or beginning of high school where a lot of girls (at my school, at least) are extra picky about her skin.

Definitely mild, but looks super irritated. I hope you sister can get back to the derm to find something a little gentler. Even the CSR would work for her, IMO.

10% BP may be a little too harsh for her. It could cause more redness than necessary... And as she has very mild acne (as what I can see from the pic) a maximum of 5% would be enough... Go for 2.5% if you can get hold of it (in Sweden the mildest is 4%)

Are there some white residue of the BP on her face? If that bothers her, tell her to use a bit more moisturizer at those places (a non-comedogenic ofc)

Tell your sister I think she's beautiful, she has no acne on her, I WISH I had skin that clear. Her skin is actually amazingly clear, there is no acne.
