I get some zits but I ha every sensitive skin and lots of stuff makes my skin get red and splotchy. For breakout I use benzoyl peroxide cream and that really helps, so does weekly exfoliation and mud masks a couple times a week. I've found lots of the Avene line to be good for my skin. It's been a lot of trial and error finding a combination of products that work well for my skin

Oh ya!!

I'm going to be 50 in June and I still get the occasional one or two, but my main problem is blackheads. YUCK! I always had really oily skin and both tend to run in my family, the women more than the men. I've tried everything there is and the best thing I found for acne brake outs is, now this is going to sound funny but it really does work. Baby bum cream! The real name is zinc Oxide cream and you can find it in the baby department at any place that sells baby items. All you do is put a tiny bit on the zit at night and it dries it right up. I found this on the net and thought well it can't hurt to try it. I was shocked at how well it worked. My son's now use it when they get the occasional zit and it works for them as well. Now it doesn't work that great on those bad lumps that come out and don't get a white top, I call them ingrown zits and they hurt really bad when they pop up, but it does still help. I bought a 100g Walmart brand bottle two years ago, three of us use it and its still full, that how little you need to use. Give it a try and let me know if it helps you as well.

hormonal acne

I treated my skin horribly when I was a teenager and never had anything on my face. In the last year I had gone through some pretty severe cystic acne spots right along my jaw line. Talking to my BF about it we realized that about 8 months earlier I had stopped taking Birth Control. Immediately got a new prescription, and its been about 3 months now and my skin is not spotless, but it is immensely better and I actually enjoy going out without makeup on now. It was a weird experience because I had never had problems with my skin before. I feel like I have alot more sympathy for someone dealing with acne, especially as an adult.

Adult Acne and Large Pores

Been there.. I found using Benefit's The Porefessional completely makes my big pores disappear for the day. I LOVE THIS stuff and it is a must for me.

For long term treatment I have been using the duo by Murad, There is a acne treatment and the a pore clearer. That got the zits under control and kept the pores clear. Eventually with a good moisturizer the pore reduced in size.

Acne sucks

Always had wonderful skin aside from the really odd small pimple when I was a teen. When I had my son 8 years ago my hormones went psycho and now I get clogged pores that turn into pimples about once or twice a month even though I take better care of my skin now in my 30's than I ever did in my life. It's annoying but at least it's not bad and leaves scars. I do use a professional blackhead removal tool and that helps. Plus clarins all in one exfoliator is the best one I've tried imo.
