Tell me how to fix my skin?

What’s going on guys?

I've inherited bad skin from my mom's side of the family. My acne has pretty much been gone for a few years now but I’m 22 now and I’m still having skin problems.

I'm pretty sure they are white heads but I'm not 100 percent certain, so I decided to post here and see what you guys though. I've left them along for years in the hopes that they would just disappear, but I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon. So I'm wondering what I can do to cure my skin of this ugliness.

Here are the photos..

Right now all I use is dove soap to clean my face because my derm told me a long time ago that it's best for my skin type and regular cleansers will just tryout my skin. What do you guys think?

hmm, I say a cleanser and a moisturizer should stop those from appearing.

I think I remember reading somewhere that soap is bad for your face.

dont use soap for your face, it can also dry out and break-down skin like nothing else. I recommend what im using, its called nature's plus natural beauty cleansing bar. I use it because it only has natural ingredients, it has Vitamin E that soothes and heals skin. I also like this non-soap bar because its not soap and because its PH is 4.5... all skin is slightly acidic, normal skin ranged from 5.5.-5.8 thats why i like this cleanser, it is closer and less harsh then alkali soaps and acne cleansers.

And for dryness i use mercola's bodybutter for the face before going in the shower, it has jojoba oil, aloe vera and etc. plus its all 100% organic. Its pretty oily so id only use it maybe 2-3 times a week.. i recently ordered merola's nighttime creame which is an all organic moisturizer and hopefully less oily-feeling.

thats all you need to keep your skin clear.. moisturizer ans a slightly acidic cleanser.

Thanks guys for all the replies. I will definetly look into switching cleansers.

I haven't looked into The Acne.org Regimen yet, but I will poke around in the morning and see what it's all about.

Thanks again :)
