Adult Acne...

So, I NEVER had any zits or acne as a kid. My skin was always clear. For the last 2 years I have really had issues with my skin being clear. Anybody know of a good skincare regemin for stubborn adult acne?

  • Jawline acne is usually hormonal. I've had issues with hormonal acne for a few years, too, but I've found a regimen that helps a lot. I use Dr. Woods black soap with shea to wash my face, a microfiber facial cloth for gentle exfoliation, organic facial lotions, organic argan oil at night, fruit enzyme facial peel weekly, and tea tree oil cleansing pads. I also take a high quality cod liver oil daily. What I feel has done the most for my skin is the black soap. It's awesome.

  • What are you using on your face now?
    Are you on any type of birth control?

    What you are currently using (makeup or cleansing products) can have an effect on your skin. Birth control can too.

  • I used Merle Norman on my face when I had crazy hormonal acne. You could also try some tea tree oil. Where are the blemishes? If it is around your jaw, neck, that's probably stress and hormones. good luck!

  • I use Mary Kay as well. Timewise collection will take care of your type of skin and the acne spot gel drys my pimples up over night when I have my break out. I'm guessing your skin is combo/oily because dry skin rarely breaks-out due to lack of oil, so find yourself a cleanser that is for combo/oily skin. Then you can find acne toners if you choose, and make sure you use oil-free moisturizer and make-up products! If you want send me a message and I can tell you a whole list of products you can try!

  • I'm 26 and just started getting acne a little over a year ago...I've tried many things, serious skin care, proactiv, mychelle worked the best but still didn't completely cure it....About two months ago a girlfriend of mine was hosting a spa party for Beauti Control. I went to it and ordered the products because the girl sounded pretty convincing. Not even two weeks later I noticed a significant difference. Since then, I started selling the product. I've never sold anything in my life but I am very confident in this product. I'm not just trying to make a sale here, my goal is to help people like me because I know how frustrating it is to suffer with this. If you want to check out my page, you can p.m. me for more info on the products if you are interested...After you go to my page click on skin care and then b.c. spa facial. Those are the products you will need.

  • oh, and just fyi...everyone is saying that it depends on your skin type, well i can send you a patented skin sensor for free by mail that will determine your skin type. Our company is the only one that has something like this.
