  • You don't have to be a teen to get pimples. Adult have greasy faces too. All you need to do it wash it better and more often. Always wash your face off before you go to bed if you've worn makeup

  • Oh my gosh!!! I know how you feel! I have NEVER had a problem with acne and ever since January, I feel like I am going through puberty!!! WHAT"S GOING ON!?!?!?!?! lol I have a couple of friends that are going through the same thing so maybe it's just a phase! (Hopefully) Same here on the makeup and oily part. Soooo frustrating!

  • at this stage, its likely to be hormonal. did you change BC or stop it recently? when was the last time you had your hormone levels checked?
    also, if you use a cell phone a lot, you could be transferring dirts/bacteria unconsciously.

  • When thseason changes for me, I tend to get a little acne like I am currently facing :) Just continue to clean your face morning and night and make sure to use a type of good moisturizer.

  • I never got acne as a teen but as my hormones changed when I got into my mid - later 20's I started to get it. Now at 36 I still battle the occasional blemish. It seems weird to apply both wrinkle cream and zit cream at the same time.. lol!

  • lmao, only when I'm pregnant do I get those monsters.. as a matter of fact right now i have TWO (shivers), lol.

    honestly I use toothpaste.. apply a dab at night with an ointment cream (for bacteria, since those big suckers are pustules, and thus means they are infected)

  • I am 31 and I still get zits, mainly before I start my period. It is VERY annoying.
