I started breaking out about two years ago and ever since I've been trying to clear my skin. I know it's mostly hormones but I just want to find out how I can clear it. I have spots on my forehead, some acne scars on my cheek, spots on my chin, blackheads on my chin, nose, forehead and some on my cheek and no whiteheads. I use african black soap, tried witch hazel, benzoyl peroxide, doing NOTHING, vitamin E oil and so much more. All they did was make it worse. African black soap is kind of helping but not much. I also use Bentonite clay. Is there anything else I can try that helps people?

I agree with VulneraryRain, a consistent regimen is important.

It's hard to tell from a single post what could be beneficial to you. Personnally, I had no real improvement / relief before I started seeing a dermatologist that put me on antibiotics - first topical (Clindamycin), then oral (Doxycycline, with topical retinol). I'm not saying it's what you need, some people are against antibiotics for acne and other are uncomfortable, reluctant because  of the potential side effects. All I'm saying is trial and error on my own never really worked, so my advice would be to consult with a specialist if you can afford to.

hii, @ella273  you should try face mask for acne and clear skin. i have one suggestion for you which you should try is make paste of sandalwood powder, 1tbsp coconut oil and some lemon drop. and apply it on your face where you have acne or dark spot and also you can apply on whole face and keep it for 20-30 minutes until it dry. then wash with cold water and use soft cotton cloth. after this for night you can use essential oil i would like to suggest you [Virginic Japanese Peppermint Essential Oil]. this really helps for irritating skin and for dry skin and also refresh the skin. this is pure organic and natural. and you can every solution you just need to look deep into nature. take care
