  1. I'm 17 and used to have excessively oily skin. I absolutely hated it; my face would turn oily within 20 minutes, and it was the main contributor to my acne. It was so bad that around dinnertime, my eyelids would even start to get greasy. However, I've noticed since last week that my skin seems to have suddenly changed and become dry - in fact I can see it's peeling. When I touch my cheeks they are completely oil free! I can now last a whole school day without having to worry about my face being

    My Skin Just Won't Clear Up?

    I did try salicyclic acid for a few months without success, then I switched to benzoyl peroxide which still had no effect on me :/
  6. Hi all, this is my first post I turn 17 next month and first started getting acne when I was 12. Back then my acne was relatively severe, and due to my young age I had no idea to how to treat them. The severity of my condition lessened around age 14, when I mainly battled with comedonal acne. I would still breakout badly one from time to time and finally tried Accutane. It worked wonders! My skin COMPLETELY cleared, and even my stubborn blackheads were gone without a trace. However, my mom made
