Here goes....

I'm 27 years old and have had a lot of adult acne - underneath the surface of my skin, whiteheads and pustles. I was given the Retin-A topical cream, it has helped control my acne but has been more of a band-aid solution. Most of my acne is on my side burns and chin - my cheeks and forehead is completely clear. I know my dermetoligist will now recommend oral antibiotics - Minocin. I have heard horrible things about oral antibiotics and their side effects. My day to day rechime is below.

Any recommendations would be helpful, my acne has gone out of control and I'm desperate for any solution. It has seriously effected my self esteem and I don't know what my next step should be....


Kiehl'sBlue Herbal Gel Cleanser - Acne prone face wash with Sailcyclic Acid.
