Need help!

Yeah...Im probably beating a dead horse, but my acne is terrible! Im african american and I sware I have tried everything on gods green earth and nothing, and i repeat nothing works! I break out so easy, if I even look at something greasy I break out. Also it doesnt help that I work in the kitchen around ovens and grease and oils...I wash my face constantly, and yes, sometimes I do pick and I know that is a BIG NO NO but I do. Anyhoo to make a long story short..anyone has any suggestions?? :-({|=

I remember my job contributing to my acne a few months ago.. I would wash my face twice at work.. that equaled to washing my face 4 times a day.. granted, I didnt use soap.. just splashed water on my face.. but it still aggrivated my skin.. if you notice excess oil during the day.. just splash some water on your face at work and dry with a clean towel.. Remember: the simplest plan is the most effective.

yeah actually I have tried that, and my face dries up and gets so flaky. I hate it. Im thinking about trying eucerin as a moisturizer. I used to use cocoa butter and sometimes that would break me out even worse...i dunno. ](*,)

hi, i believe being around grease definitely contributes to your acne...just make sure u dont touch your face at ALL throughout the day...your skin sounds like mine...breaks out over anything...just be careful what you put on your face as far as make up, hands, telephone, facial wash and moisturizers...im sure u check all of your ingredients in make up and things like that, but if not...always make sure it says oil free, non codmedgenic, wont clog pores and no fragrances...those things can contribute to acne as well....(these are my personal opinions and suggestions and hopefully they might help you) good luck !!
