@out4answers:  If you live near a Lush store, I recommend trying out some of their facial soaps and scrubs. I’ve been using Dark Angels and their Tea Tree oil since July and it has made a big difference. Otherwise, Cetaphil and some witch hazel might be able to help you out.

Hmm..in 15 days you could probably get a reaaaally good facial and not have to worry to much about still being red for your wedding.  Also, if you aren’t all ready, start drinking water A LOT.  I just realized that my water intake had gone down, and even though I don’t drink sugary drinks, I just wasn’t drinking a lot in general.  I now make sure I get 80 oz of water a day if not more.  My skin isn’t completely clear, but I have seen a huge improvement.  This probably won’t do much for black heads tho.  Whatever you do, DON’T TOUCH YOUR SKIN.  Also, a lot of ladies on her have recommended that getting cortisone shots can help reduce the appearence of a particularly nasty blemish in a few days.  Good luck!  Hope that helps 😉

The Clinique facial wash system has always worked well for me.  

The biggest find was the “Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel” This was the first daily moisturizer that didn’t make my skin feel oily afterwards (and I’ve tried MANY oil-free ones and I never liked them). 

When I’m feeling flush I’ll also use their liquid facial soap; when I’m not-so-flush, I’ll use Yes to Cucumbers or Simple products which I can get at Safeway & CVS.  But the Clinique moisturizer is a must-have for me.

I use and swear by neutrogena acne stress control face wash as well as their toner. My skin has never looked better!

I’ve been using Proactiv for the past couple of weeks and my skin has completely turned around. I started breaking out about a year ago (after never really having problem skin) and tried a million different products.

I honestly swear by it – my skin is so much clearer and softer!

@juliette.eliza:  Yes to Tomatoes comes in anti-acne scrub wipes.  I have been using those when I get sweaty, instead of jumping in the shower multiple times a day, or when I want to take of makeup, but don’t want to dry my skin with face wash.  I try to stick with the face wash only twice a day.  I love the Yes To products!!!

@out4answers:  Oops! I didn’t specify lol.  It’s not a store, it’s a product line they carry at Target.  It’s usally in the makeup section where the Bert’s Bee’s is located.

Willing to spend a little money? Believe it is worth it—


Agree with MrsMarbee–get a good facial. Get one with microdermabrasion, it has been miraculous for my face. I also recently purchased the Clarisonic Mia, used in conjunction with DDF products.


Still not helping? Get in to a dermatologist a few days before the wedding and get cortisone shots. Make sure it’s a couple days out, because you may bleed a little (since you are getting shots right into the breakout) but they will be GONE by the next day.


I’m actually making a “just in case” appointment a few days before mine.

Hope it helps!
