Hi, Hope all is well

I'm seeking desperate advice regarding my skin, i was unsure about what category to put my topic in so apologies before hand.

Basically i am on duac as prescribed as a new resort after using so many other products, have been using this now for about 12 months..I can say it has controlled breakouts massively and suited my acne alot...

, i use simple soap

Ingredients ing-down.gif Aqua, Etidronic Acid, Glycerin, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Cocoate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Sodium Tallowate, Tetrasodium EDTA

in which I use morning and evening. I use duac only on evening times as its not suitable to wear out, as advised and tested.

My skin i believe is suffering from alot of oiliness I use

Boots Skin Clear Oil Free Mattifying Lotion

Aqua (Water), Octyldodecanol, Glycerin, Alcohol denat., Cyclopentasiloxane, Sodium polyacrylate, Cyclohexasiloxane, Lauryl methacrylate/glycol dimethacrylate cross polymer, Phenoxyethanol, Salicylic acid, Acrylates/vinyl isodecanoate crosspolymer, Ammonium glycyrrhizate, Polysorbate 20, Parfum (Fragrance), Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Dipropylene glycol, Potassium hydroxide, Tetrasodium EDTA

as advised i use this lotion, and i reckon my skin has become prone to it, as daily my skin feels very oily, when i touch my face i can see the oil on my hands, as my face looks and feels shiny.

Also as u can see via my album this re reinforces the redness.

too add im very aware i have scars from previous acne picking (white heads, spots) and would like to know how to get rid of these scars also. I wont go in 2 the stress i feel every day looking at my skin however will hope this forum can bring me luck in finding the right procedures and products to give me flawless skin.

I am recently considering peels but want to spend my money correct as i am student and don't wanna go down a past route of buyin so many products im practically damaging my skin further.

thank u very much for reading.

Simple (for men) facewash

Quinoderm face wash I'm using at the moment (have to order this online)

Do a bit of searching on this forum! there are several options. Make sure they do not contain aggrivating ingredients and are suitable for sensitive skin
