Have you tried topical retinoids (e.g. Differin) and how long you actually used BP? You could try paleo diet at least 3 months so that you see whether it works for you. You could also take omega 3 (no EFA 3-6-9), zinc and vitamin D supplements. And keep in mind that weightlifting can aggravate acne, not to mention whey protein.

Edit: I just noticed that the first post was written two years ago.

The #1 thing that made my skin look like it was hit by Napalm during the Vietnam War was the 1990's version of Clinique Facial Scrub. Basically it is sand in a tube. You put it on and you can feel the skin. If your skin wasn't red and torn up before, it soon will be! Combine that with warm water and your face will be extremely smooth - and this smoothness will highlight every flaw imaginable. If you want to get depressed in 5 minutes or less, choose Clinique!
