Advce for a teenager with acne?

My face... (I think it looks redder in the pics than it really is)



Products I use/have (Plus green tea drinken and washed with, lye soap, baking soda, egg whites)



I am 16 with this situation. Looking to clear it all up. I swim daily, live in the humid Missouri heat, drink a 1/4 gallon of green tea daily, drink Monster about 3-4 times per week, and live a pretty stress free life.

Please suggest me a schedule for using these products I have (IE how much of what, when, and how often). Also what things should I add/avoid in my diet?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Zach,

Hopefull I can help you out with this reply.

I used to swim daily too, and simply being in the chlorine so much helped my acne immensely. Here's what you should try (in my opinion).

1. Wake up and wash with baking soda.

2. Do your normal swimming routine.

3. After practice wash with lye soap

4. After that apply a hot towel to your face and relax.

Hope this helps!!
