  1. Do you have a current skincare routine? This includes a cleanser, acne treatment, moisturizer, and sunscreen. A good cleanser doesn't have to be something medicated with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.

I'm willing to go on it if it will help, but are there any other alternative the dermatologist can prescribe that does NOT have a purging period? I don't want to have to go through a purge since I don't want to still be broken out because of it by the ti
  5. I'm 14 and about to start 9th grade next year. At the beginning of the 8th grade year my acne wasn't that bad, and I looked pretty good. But then by the end I started to break out on my cheeks and chin instead of my usual forehead breakouts and it started to kill me. I started getting addicted to skincare because everyone at my age had perfect, dewy, glowing skin and I didn't. I would cancel plans with my friends, and i would never look people straight in the face. I even avoid my crush because
