Ladies, I need a recommendation for something that will clear my face up. I have had acne since I was like 13 and nothing works. I have tried Proactiv, Neutrogena, Clean and Clear..I mean, you name it, I have tried it. Prescriptions..like, Differin gel..now that worked..but I can't afford it...anyways, does anyone know of anything that works? Also, I get alot of blackheads, like in my nose and on the sides of my face and nose. I think I hate that the most. Anyways, it's not bad all the time..I just have breakouts alot and they get bad. So, if someone knows, please let me know.Answer Question

Are you on any form of birth control? I have PCOS and one of the side effects is very bad acne. Because it's hormonal, nothing topical works for me. I am on a low androgen BCP called, Ortho-Cept, and my face is 100% blemish free!! I know that there are a lot of pills that are supposed to help.
Unfortunately, that's the only advice I can give. Nothing else has worked for me... good luck!!

If you find the answer, let me know too!!! I've had acne since I was 11. Nothing has worked...I think I've been on every prescription med in the world. Sometimes, I think it must be hormonal. The only thing I haven't been on is accutane. I have a cousin who went on that when we were in high school...10 years later her skin is still beautiful (in fact she's a model). Other than that, I've tried it all...Differin, Retin-A, and every other thing...no results.

I had/have this issue. What has made a huge difference is the Clarisonic Face Brush. I use it everyday with my cleansers. Not only is my acne almost gone, my scars are getting lighter AND the pimples I do get go away fast. I use the Aveda basic skin care line. Also it makes your skin care products last twice as long. I will say that it is expensive BUT if you are concerned about your acne this is the best. http://www.clarisonic.com/
I found it on ebay for 165 with free shipping.
