Recommended Posts

Well i just started Murad a week or two ago.... i do the whole cleanse, gel, then lotion thing... and ive been taking ampicillin.. was hoping this combination would help. I also started adding Panoxyl right after cleansing at night..before i put on the murad gel.

So never any prescription creams or anything?

i have never seen a dermatologist before.. I never had bad acne like this before in my life. It recently started happening when i got a job with the casino a few months back. Sometime in November. I dont work there no more but its gotten progressively worst. At first it was just little bumps now its red and scarring.

I'd switch to using simple products. Too many products and the wrong products can make acne worse. Try running the products you use on your face through CosDNA to see if they contain comedogenic ingredients. Some nice gentle face washes are Boots Sensitive foaming, simple refreshing gel wash, or even baby shampoo. I'd also maybe try something like BP or AHA on your acne and see if that helps. Cutting out food triggers like Dairy could be helpful as well.

Should i try just rinsing my face with warm water in the mornings and benzoyl peroxide at night? i tried it for a week or so before and it seemed like it helped a bit. but

my sister suggested that maybe its the chemicals im putting on my skin thats making me break out more and that i should just wash wiht only water
