When i first noticed i had pimples i went out and bought a basic body wash,
Nivea visage refreshing cleansing gel.It worked on my face for a while but then failed to keep them off and i found that it made my skin dry and flaky although it still had enough grease to cause pimples.
My brother started using Proactiveand it seemed to work for him.I tried it and didnt get much of a result. I have realized that proactive works on pimples but not acne and is a very high price.
As my acne got worse i started using Benzac 2.5% then moved on to 5%.It had a great effect for a while but my acne was too severe on my back for it. I moved onto 10% which worked but still had the side effect of unbearably dry skin. I later tried ancegel which is just a generic benzac but still 10% benzoyl peroxide. These creams are very harsh and have even bleached my t-shirts on various occasions.
My doctor advised me that 'the pill' would stop the mass production of oil in my skin so i took the pill 'Diane'. Again it worked on my face but my back didnt change at all.
between all these i have used countless amounts of scrubs, soaps, washes, remedies and even changed my diet.
In 2 days i am going to the dermatologist.My brother was prescribed roacutaine from the same doctor and my acne is more severe than his so heres hoping i get it too.
wish me luck!!
