I never had acne until I stopped taking birth control at age 22. A year later I started getting the occasional pimple, and a few years after that it became mild acne which was easily treated with BP.

I was sick of using BP to control it...the dry skin was getting annoying. So I decided to try the oil cleansing method. Big mistake. The first week my skin was glowing, but it was downhill after that. Now I am battling some real acne of the likes I've never had before.

Morning and night salicylic acid wash. BP, alpha hydroxy lotion in the morning. Duac gel, neutrogena retinol lotion in the night. Progress has been slow but sure...but slow.
