One of my friends is very acne prone and has also tried everything like that. She told me she started using a tea-tree face wash/moisturizing set from Origins and I can definitely tell that it is working really well for her. I don’t know if the other stuff was just too harsh and that was making her break out worse or what, but maybe try that? I know she said there is a daily moisturizer and then a night time cream that she uses and then the cleanser and the scrub is for twice a week.

Something you can try is Organic Acai Berry Juice. Not on your face… in your body! It’s not for losing weight like most people think. It’s a super antioxidant and makes your skin and hair GORGEOUS!

I have been using Origins for about a month and a half and it seems to be working.  I do still get occasional pimples but they clear up really fast and I don’t get a lot of tiny ones anymore.

You can only buy it at Origins stores and some department stores.  They have a website too at origins.com.  I don’t like products like Skin ID and Proactiv because they are basically benzoyl peroxide (which dries my face out like crazy) or salycilic acid (which doesn’t work too well for me).

I had the same problem right after we got engaged, and I started freaking out immediately. I tried all these things, but heres the solution that worked for me.

Everyday, when I woke up I washed my face with a gentle skin cleanser, called Cetaphil. I put dabs of 10% benzol peroxide (something I had never used before), and then I put Cetaphil lotion on my face (it feels heavy but it makes your skin lovely).At night, I did the same thing right before bed.I repeated this for a month, and 6 months later I get almost no new pimples!

One thing you have to make sure of is that when you wash your face you do it gently. When you rub the lotion or peroxide, do it very very gently, like barely touching your face. I never thought my skin was that sensitive, but this really made a difference. Stop using scrubbers or anything abrasive. When you dry your face off after a shower, dab the cloth on your face, don’t rub.

Tee tree oil is very affective as well, but I didn’t have access to it. Good luck!

I hope it works for you!  I have been doing pretty well with it.  I’m slowly transitioning to the new Zero Oil line.  The Checks and Balances cleanser is great for the winter though.

Just chiming in to say the Clarisonic Mia is amazing! (But yeah, it’s a little pricey.)  Good luck!

I have dry, very sensitive skin that breaks out. I’ve tried Retin A, alpha hydroxy, gentle cleansers like Cetaphil, and nothing worked! The Clarisonic changed my life!- no more peeling, almost no breakouts at all. I use it with Philosophy Purity cleanser and Hope in a Jar moisturizer.

I started using products from Avalla/Nutrimetics…all natural products and they are GREAT. 

I actually started selling the line too because I loved all the products and now a lot of my family and friends are using them too.

My fiance has a bit of trouble with breaking out after eating dairy.  He gets very red, blotchy, little pimply dots.  He has to consume dairy in very low amounts.

As for me, I found that every soap outside of Irish Springs for showering leaves me with acne prone skin especially dove.
