Acne Questions! Please Help!

First, I am male, 16 years old and I have a small Unibrow and whenever I pluck it with tweezers the next day I have one or two bumps/pimples where the hairs used to be and that is a REALLY CRAPPY PLACE TO HAVE Zits! Anything I can do about this? I don't want to stop plucking these hairs(maybe I should shave them?). Maybe a cream I can rub on after I pluck them?

I have cystic acne on my side burns and some on my chin. I have been using Retin A for a month but its not doing much.

Any natural remedies you can recommend?

Re: Acne Questions! Please Help!

Don't shave your eyebrows... it looks really tacky! Try putting some benzyol peroxide (clearasil or clean and clear...) on the area after you pluck. Make sure that your hands and the area are clean when you do pluck. The pumps might be ingrown hairs.... try placing a warm washcloth on it to coax it down.

If you have acne a good skin care routine can make a big difference! Wash your face with a good cleanser in the morning and before bed. Use a toner/astringent after that. Then rub in the Retin A. I bet you'll see a difference!
