i find that shaving with a electric shaver like once a week helps my acne. i have been using tazorac, gly derm gentle cleanser, and doxycycline for over six months now. i stopped using doxycycline because it doesnt work. my acne has drastically improved since day 1 but hasnt completely gone away, annoying. but i find that the more my facial hair comes in the less oily my face is and the less acne i have. i am just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. i have moderate acne with very little scarring and i want to keep it that way.

yep i thought i was the only one who thought that...when i havent shaved for a bit i look like i have clearer skin and i look less oily as well.

i dont know why since hair is supposed to be oily!

i have pretty good skin (i just dont want to break out ever and hey my parents have good insurance)but im still telling my doc to put me on clindagel and retin a micro to get rid of the red spots etc.

i only shave at night so when i wake up im not all red and gross.but im 1000 times shinier.thats so weird!im going to have to ask my doc why that is!!!
