so how would you class my acne? i wouldnt say i get that many big painful spots, its just more like a general rash all over my face if you know what i mean. i realise how lucky i am, as there are people i know with problems much worse than mine. but yano, i need to know what i can do to solve MY problem.

cheers in advance peeps xxxx

Not to bad, I'd agree with the moderate verdict - it's similar to my own in fact but a lot less inflamed. Of course that means little to you as you don't know what I look like. ;)

The editing on that first image is proper scary though.

What solutions (if any) have you tried for your skin before? BP is probably a good place to start, wish I had tried it a long time ago. Visit your doctor as well see what he/she has to say.

it's moderate, i would start off with some BP (or better yet duac) in the morning, and something like differin at night, and just wash and moisturize twice a day with something gentle like cetaphil. if you can't get to a doctor, just get some OtC BP.

hey guys thanks for all the advice. im using this 3 step anti blemish solutions from clinique and that seems to have helped me a lot. however, there are some things that just dont seem to fade. ive been on BP after i went to visit my doctor after my spots became too much to bare. i started off on 2.5 but moved on really quickly to 5. since i started with the clinique stuff i laid off the BP because it seemed to work. however, id say now i just had maybe 4 or 5 big spots on my face. now, its just more one big rash.

do you think using BP in the morning and the facial washed at night would be worth a try?? or the other way around?

Not going to lie..

The editing on your eyes and nose scared the shit out of me.
