first thing.

you need to take your bangs and put them back and leave them there.

the oil from your hair is not helping you one bit.

also as much as it sucks you need to not wear make-up on your forehead let your skin breathe.

if you must wear it then make sure its a light mineral powder.

You have terribly congested skin. This is a result of makeup and hair on the face. I have battled with this too. This is what worked for me:

1. Glycolic cleanser used at first at night then after a week morning and night.

2. Glycolic lotion purchased at Sephora - either DDF or somthing like that.

3. Do not use mineral powders! They clog the skin! Use a light foundation with a tint in it that's oil free.

Glycolic products will get rid of the clogging. Also make sure that you use an oil free sunscreen every day while using the glycolic. Thats very important. This regiman will help you. Also you may want to see a derm about prescription creams like Azelaic Acid. Dont over use both the Azealaic and the glycolic, I use azelaic at night and glycolic in the am.

Go see a dermatologist for something topical and maybe some antibiotics. If you can't go see a dermatologist, you can try using a salicylic acid 2% wash (like Nutragena). And use a benzoyl peroxide spot treatment. Thats my suggestion. Also, just make sure your makeup is oil free. If you can use something like Bare Escentuals mineral make up that is better for your skin. But whatever you use, make sure its oil free. Keeping your hair off your face is probably a good idea or just wash it often, and maybe just sleep with it in a soft headband or something. That couldn't hurt.

I bet your acne will clear up well with topicals. You can try those two things, or otherwise go to the doctor!!
