  • Acne in adults is a medical condition. Ask your Dr about what you can get to help clear it up.

  • I swear by Neutrogena grapefuit foaming face wash. Clears up acne quickly. The meds from the doctor are very harsh and drying to your face. I stopped using them and used Neutrogena or Cetaphil instead. Worked better, was cheaper and not as harsh.

  • AcneFree! They sell it at Walmart and it has been the only thing to ever work for me. My skin was horrible for a time.

  • What worked WONDERS for me is this awesome simple trick.

    Buy some 10% benzoil peroxide acne cream. Add A PEA SIZE amount to your finger tips. Add a generous amount of your favorite facial moisturizer to your finger tipa, mix them together & apply all over your face.

    Benzoil peroxide is the ONLY thing that actually kills pimple bacteria, but it really dries your face out. If you mix it with a bunch of facial cream, it will kill pimples while your moisturizer keeps your face moist.

    I learned this trick before my wedding day & i have not had a problem with acne since. My face was horrible before i found out about this neat trick.

    Pro-active didn't work for me, neither did tea tree oil. Tea tree oil burned my skin real bad...i do use it for other remedies though. It's is some neat stuff.
