Clean and clear advance treatment….comes in a silver tube with a purple cap. It will clear anything up within a day or two and it will look 100% overnight! Good to have on hand!

If you can, I would see a dermatologist because they can make really good recommendations for products. While some sell their own product lines, my dermatologist always has great over the counter suggestions, and they can also perscribe stuff that is a little stronger than over the counter stuff when you need it.

If you’re looking for homeopathic remedies, make sure you take a multivitamin every day and drink tea- esp. green or white for the antioxidants!

I got a lot of little bumps with a few flare ups… then I got a Clarisonic. It’s been a month and my skin hasn’t been this smooth since pre-puberty.

It’s a bit spendy but well worth it.

One thing that I use to the bumpy pimples that don’t have a whitehead is the Zeno.  You have to use it right when you notice the pimple coming up.  It’s a bit costly but really works wonders!

ooooh no don’ use hydrogen peroxide!!! way to strong, as well as any of the clean and clear range.This might work for you personally but people with more sensitive skin it is terrible!

Alcohol based products dry out and irritate the skin making it more red and inflamed. Hydrogen peroxide is bleach!! Try a cleansing mask once a week(as natural as possible) with Kaolin as an ingredient- There are quite a few out there… Masks are great because they get right down to the pores (the source of the problem) and draw out any dirt. Cleanse and lightly moisturise twice daily and drink LOTS and LOTS of water!! Tea tree oil is good to dab on those spots, but try it on your inner arm first to test for allergies.

(I used to work in a pharmacy) Goodluck!

I use Acne Free. Its like proactive, but cheaper, and at the store! It has the 3 stages, and also you can buy a spot treatment. Works pretty good for me!

I have pretty sensitive skin and it has worked wonders, if you used it as a toner like product I don’t think it would do anything. She can try it, it has been around FOR YEARS for acne purposes.

I agree with Miss Burgandy- go to your Derm. They know your skin best and can recommend the best products for you. We can all type our best tips till our fingers can no longer type- but you will go through a long period of trial and error and run the risk of making your skin worse! You certainly dont want that to happen.. you could even just call your Derm and ask for a call back for some recommendations.

Also, I agree with swissbride- dont, and I repeat- do not– use peroxide! Way too strong and can do more harm than good. Not to mention, it could bleach your hairline!! That happened to a friend of mine…

I would recommend going a dermatoligist and thinking about ways to improve your diet. Also, drinking more water, stressing out less and sleeping more always help.

I personally took accutaine a few years ago and totally recommend anyone worried about their skin as bad as I was at least talking to their dermatologists about it. It is very extreme, but surprisingly easy for me to take with few side effects (only dry skin).

Even though I completed it successfully, I still break out especially on my chest and back. I plan on having my makeup artist touch up any areas that need it on my wedding day.

I use Aveeno foaming face wash (I can’t remember the full name, but it is the one for clear skin).  It has salicylic acid in it, but it is pretty mild.  I have sensitive skin and I don’t have problems.  I still get the occassional monster pimple once a month (thank you hormones), but this stuff does a good job of keeping things under control.

Diluted tea tree oil, use a damp cotton ball to apply! It’s nature’s astringent and anticeptic. By The Way, I guess I would test if first, to make sure you’re not allergic, you never know!

A month before my wedding I started drinking a lot of water.  It really helps to keep your skin clear.  I also started using Caudalie’s Vinoperfect Serum twice a day – morning and night.  My skin glowed on my wedding day.

I went to a dermatologist and he recommended Sastid Soap.  It is a dandruff bar soap that you use to wash your face.  First it softens the skin and then it starts to slowly peel always the dry skin on  your face.  I’ve been using this for a year now and I’ve haven’t had a single pimple since.
