That last little bit..

Recommended Posts

I've had pretty bad acne for the past two years, though now it's starting to get better...except my forehead/sides of my face. The worse my face got, the more I covered it with hair, but now I want it cut short. Only problem is what's left, does anybody have some suggestions of what I could change about my daily routine?

PS Anti-biotics aren't an option, I've developed pretty strong immunities to most of them

PPS My skin also dries out with retin-a micro 0.1, severely.

My daily routine:


In the morning I wash my face with luke warm water, then I wash it with Spectro (purple body, acne prone skin).

After this I splash cold water on, mosturize (Nivea Visage - Rich day care for sensitive skin)


In the afternoon I rinse my face with cool water, or pat it with a kleenex to get the oils off.


At night I use slightly warmer water, spectro again, moisturize, put on retin-a 0.25% gel, then leave it be.

Which changes could help get rid of the last bit? Would most of it go away if I cut my hair(within a week or two? ): ) I don't eat the healthiest, would eating better help? I've been getting blackheads on my forehead also, what should I do about these?
