  • My doctor gave me a prescription cream. I used it for a month or two and i've never had a problem sense. ..that happened years ago.

    My husband has bad acne and has recently started using ACV to get rid of it. He says it seems to be working ...but then again, he only just started using it.

  • I went to the doctor and was put on accutane. It worked but really puts your body through the wringer.

  • I am OBSESSED with ProActive! I started using it months ago because nothing else was working and I was sick of using diffrent facial washes all the time and never seeing any results. This stuff has worked wonders for me. No pimples, blackheads, anywhere! Good luck, I know how frustrating acne can be!

  • pure honey, and green tea bags. rub the green tea bag on your face(after its been boiled of course) and it aids in helping your skin clear and make it glow. pure honey is antibacterial, this is why it aids in helpling it clear. just apply a honey mask before you wash your face daily. i used to go through plenty of store bought treatments and none worked..but then i began watching what i ate as well as using what nature gave us and really thats what gave me my skin back:) good luck

  • Here is how my teen handles her acne: wash your face twice a day with a very mild soap (like unscented baby soap) and a soft wash cloth; follow with a light, oil free moisturizer (she uses Lush). Once a day, before you wash your face, put on a honey mask (just honey, a great anti-bacterial). Every three days add a pinch of baking soda to the honey to exfoliate. Check back with me in two weeks and tell me how this worked.

  • I use ProActive, it is a great product for pimples and balances the skin, not over drying it or leaving it oily. Try it!
