I dont really have bad acne I just have acne and redness that I would like to be rid of. I've tried tons of stuff and as a result I have tons of stuff. I recently went out and got some witch hazel and some nelsons acne gel (its natural stuff look it up). I have no idea if its going to work because I really dont know the best way to use it. Other products I currently have are Differen, Tulac, Retin - A, Benzol Peroxide (10%), and Tazorak. There were like all prescription meds that I took and they didn't really work and I was wondering, maybe if I used something with the witch hazel it would work better. I've been using the witch hazel in the morning and the nelsons at night but maybe I shud be using them together? I just dont wanna be puttin all this stuff on my face and then going out into the sun and dying.....
I would use proactive. I like it but it says to avoid sun exposure. I use the lotion that came in my proactive kit and it has sunscreen. I might use regular sunscreen when I'm in the sun for long periods of time.
I read that you are 16. You should see if your parents will let you try proactive. I know I wish I had when I was 17. That is when my face looked terrible.

i agree with dani. try proactiv thats what i use! its great. and for the redness proactiv also has a skin lightening lotion that works great too. you will definetly be pleased with the results! **hope you try it**
hmmmm? what about accutane? i have heard that it gets worse b4 better and who wants that? have you tried the clearisil line? i know this is kind of a weird question, but what are your pimples like? i mean. are they small, large or what?
Sounds like you might have rosacea ... if redness is the only problem try getting some photofacials ... I have seen from my own friends mothers that had the procedure done, dramatic results were apparent. Of course they had about 4 treatments done but the redness was gone and so were some of her wrinkles (thats what she told me).
nah i dont have that. I've been to the dermatologist and he says my face is lookin alot better (but I guess he hasta say that doesn't he?) i guess it is a little better, I dont have a lot of acne all over just like some areas i have a bit and then i have like 2-3 just like noticeable pimples that u can see from far away that i'd like to get rid of
