Hey i'm new to this board but no stranger to acne. What i've found that works is a treatment called Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub by Neutrogena which contains salicylic acid that cleans out the pores and washes away dead skin cells that could lead to acne if they clog up the pores, next I use OXY maximum strength Acne Wash wish contains 10% benzoyl peroxide that trigers acne and lets oxygen into the area. After each wash, rinse with hot water then gently pat dry. I do this 3 times a day and drink lots of water wich helps skin to remain clear and freash. I've been doing this for about a week now a and my face is all but ridden of acne and all thats left are a few red marks that will dissapear with the drinking of water and the salicylic acid treatment. Acne did ruin my life but things will look up, you just have to find the right routine for you, feel free to try this one if you like.

Morning:

Wash with erno laszlo soap for oily skin

Use VMV clendomycine phosphate retinoic acid

Oxy 10 for spot treatments

afternoon

St. Ives apricot scrub medicated

evening

erno laszlo soap for oily skin

Maxipeel or baby face with tetrinoin

Himitsu moisturizer

Spot treatment with erytromycin anti bacterial

6 grams of b-5 through out the day

Note: Maxipeel greatly reduced my acne but kinda dried my skin so I use the Himitsu moisturizer which is a very good combination. My skin has seen great improvements, I use to have severe acne before starting this regimen. Now I have about 3 pimples left but have some discolorization and some scars that i need to get rid off.

Morning:

- Avène soapless gel cleanser with ice cold water

- Normaderm cream (Vichy) --> supposed to reduce oil, red spots, small pimples... I used this before and I've started using it again (I've been doing the Pure Zone regimen until 2 weeks or so ago)

Night

-same as morning

I try not to put warm water to my face, it only makes it worse, I never look at my face up close in the mirror (I'm always minimum 3 m/approx. 10 ft. away), nor touch my face... since a year ago. I'm 17 and I've had acne since I was 12, I used to pick my face so much but I have no scars whatsoever. If I ever want to put on makeup all I do is my eyes and I take a paper towel and I make a rectangular hole at eye level, it's really not difficult. I know, might sound weirdo but I just don't want to be obsessing over my face all day and whether I have this zit or some other. I can say my face is clear at the moment (I just ask people I trust xDD).
