Cystic acne?

Staryt with salicylic acid and follow directions,an ice cube in a paper towel applied can reduce swelling,benzoyl peroxide destroys bacteria, and lastly over the counter hydrocortisone shrinks and reduces redness. Hope this helps a little

mainly salicylic acid

I have hormonal acne, so I break out a lot right before and during my period. I use alba botanica's Acnedote line, which contain great products for acne! I also use Vichy's Normaderm 24hr Acne Treatment.
How was accutane, if you don't mind me asking?

Re accutane

Thank you for the tips ladies !
Since I have been on Diane 35 and spironaldactone it has cleared my skin tremendously !
In regards to accutane . I took it about ten years ago and could only handle two months of side effects so I stopped it

I've found something that works!

I've been getting spots recently as well. I've found something for spot treatments that has been working for me. I apply a dab on the spot before I got to bed and in the morning there is a definite reduction is size and redness. It's Clean and Clear - persa gel 5 I really recommend you try this!

what we use

My daughter has bad skin and we have tried a few different things. What worked best for her was Neostrata. They have a few products geared towards acne. The toner was our fav.
