dude i can barely see shit, i think a medicated cleanser would take care of whatever you have. what are you using right now?

the pictures don't show the bumps very well (they're easiest to see in the first pic in my opinion).

right now i'm using neutrogena gentle cleanser, (just started using) walgreen's alpha hydroxy acide product, dan's bp gel, and neutrogena oil-free moisturizer.

what's this medicated cleanser you're talking about?

edit: does anyone know another moisturizer that won't clog your pores because the one i'm using stings real bad... but i like the fact that it's oil-free and won't clog your pores.

Hi, i cant really see the bumps but i can imagine that they must be annoying small though they are. I agree i really wouldnt try lots of harsh products, i would just wash ur face with a good face wash (i use neutrogena clear pore wash, it works well for me but u might have to experiment) moisturise well and dont pick at ur face as the bumps are really tiny and i hoestly wouldnt notice them at all if i met you im sure of it!

If ur really bothered by them i wud suggest going to see you doctor and see what they say but try drinking lots of water and eating well and they should go away.

so what do you guys mean by harsh products? is benzoyl peroxide a harsh product? is aha a harsh product? what i'm tryin' to say is should i continue the regimen? thanks for the help so far.

edit: also, i'm drinking a gallon (3.7 liters) of water a day. is that enough?

Obviously it depends on how concentrated the BP is :S I find that 2.5% is too harsh to use on sensitive areas of skin; ie my neck and around my nose.

A gallon of water is plenty... :S But I think the regimin will clear you up pretty quickly... It's hardly noticeable. I thought mine was getting much better, but yours is better than mine so lol.

Neutogena Moisturizer (both the SPF and Sensitive skin one suck) it burned me up so bad i had to stop the regiment 9 days.

ican't seem to find Cetaphil, or Eucerin, or etc etc here, so im forced to use St.Ives HypoAllergenic Oil Free Moisturizer with cornflower extract(it has no SPF tho) (im getting one once i get my credit card after i graduate)
