Hey buddy, are you darker skinned like me ?

Cause the cheeks are the worst!!!! Don't be down on yourself, just keep maintaining your regimen and forget about it. If it gets better, YAY! If it gets worse, go to your derm, he may recommend accutane or Septra DS which worked great for my brother.

Don't let it affect you too much. Mention to your derm it does though, and if anyone says dont take Septra or dont take accutane, tell them politely to back off, self-confidence nowadays is an absolute necessity.

Good luck

only wash your face twice doing 3 times will irritate your skin. also i use salycylic acid and its helped out my acne alot, just be careful of what brand you get:)

The best thing that I have found that works is:

Morning:

Purpose Gentle Cleanser

Cerave Moisturizing lotion (if your face is dry)

Evening:

Purpose Gentle Cleanser

Dan's BP

*the gentler you are with your skin and the less products you use, the better your skin will recover, hope this helps :)

That's right, just a gentle cleanser.

Hi!!!!!! Im 15 as well and have had acne on my cheeks for a veryyyyy long time!!!! Iv found that using cliniques acne solutions has helped a lot as well as using a honey and cinnamon mask everyother day. Also make sure you avoid dairy products( drink flaxseed milk instead it has as much calcium as regular milk and has lots of omega 3 which is great for your skin), processed foods, and sugar. Try to eat more fruits, vegetables, and nuts. oh and make sure to drink LOTS of water. Also if you want to wear makeup i recommend clinique and physicians formula as their products have never broken me out or you could try mineral makeup just be careful about what brand you use and last thing if you get a really HUGE pimple put some hydrogen peroxide on it and it helps a lot!!!!! Good luck :D

Turmeric has helped me incredibly! It's maintained my skin clear :D … right now I’m currently using it to get rid of my PIH marks once and for all!!! Talk about killing two birds with one stone :chuck:
