  • Use the same face wash, morning and night. It'll take a few weeks to clear up, but stick with the same routine.

  • if ur preggo its probably because of hormones...

    IM preggo and dont break out yet but I have found, even when i did get acne, was organic soap like KISS MY FACE cleared me up because it didnt have any harsh chemicals.

    so i would try KISS MY FACE or another organic soap, if u do want to try that go to an actual store that sells a lot of organic products like; Whole foods, Olivers Market, Trader Joes because they'll have a wider selecion

  • The older I get the worse my acne gets :( so I totally feel where you are coming from. I never broke out as a teenager but here the past 2 years or so my face has been horrible. As for the red marks on one side, could it be that is the side you sleep on or anything like that? (Hold the phone on, etc,etc) .. I noticed I break out on the left side of my face around my cheek area more often than the other side and when I brought it up to my doctor she said it was probably because of the dirt and bacteria on my pillow, phone, and whatever comes into contact with my face. So I change my pillowcase every day or every other day and wipe my phone down before I use it everytime and what do you know.. I am no longer breaking out in that area.

  • You probably need an acne regime a little stronger than regular over the counter stuff. People with adult acne usually do. I sell Avon and use the Clearskin Professionals Kit. Its been really great for me and does not dry out my skin or make it peel like some products do. Make sure to use all three products every day like it says. It works much better that way! if you'd like to try it us code FSANY there is a trial sized kit to try it for a week :)
